What We Do

  • Engage multiple stakeholders across government, cultural and religious institutions, civil society, private sector and implementing partners to strengthen leadership and coordination to address barriers to family planning uptake.
  • Increase the proportion of the national health budget allocated to family planning.
  • Facilitate the updating and dissemination of national family planning standards and guidelines.
  • Build capacity for service delivery with a focus on quality counseling and expansion of providers’ technical skills to offer a full range of contraceptive options.
  • Address contraceptive stock-outs to increase the access to quality voluntary family planning.
  • Develop district capacity to increase postpartum family planning and integration of other family planning services
  • Work with drug shops and private pharmacies in underserved areas where there are few or no health clinics.
  • Improve data quality, reporting, and use for program design, management and decision making.
  • Shift social norms through evidence-based social and behavior change communication techniques to improve healthy timing and spacing of pregnancies.
