Major Projects

EngenderHealth is the managing partner of several major projects—consortiums of organizations working in partnership to achieve the maximum impact on public health. These projects are country-specific, regional, or global in scope, and capitalize on the complementary capabilities of each collaborating agency. As the lead organization, EngenderHealth oversees the projects' finances, strategies, and operations while managing the partnerships. In addition, EngenderHealth contributes its specialized technical expertise to each project.

  • Agir pour la Planification Familiale expands women’s access to and use of family planning services in five West African countries: Burkina Faso, Côte d’Ivoire, Mauritania, Niger, and Togo.  
  • The CHAMPION Project increases men’s involvement in preventing the spread of HIV in Tanzania, by taking a holistic approach to HIV prevention and addressing the underlying gender issues that drive HIV transmission. 
  • Fistula Care is the largest U.S. government-funded effort to date to focus on treatment and prevention of obstetric fistula.
  • The HUSIKA Project reduces HIV incidence in Tanzania by preventing HIV transmission among key population groups most at-risk for HIV, by strengthening protective behaviors and decreasing the stigma against HIV that deters individuals from seeking health services.
  • The Male Circumcision Consortium improves and expands access to voluntary medical circumcision services in Kenya as part of an overall strategy to reduce HIV infections in men.
  • Mayer Hashi II, which means "Smiling Mother" in Bengali, aims to address the need for family planning in Bangladesh by expanding contraceptive choices and services. 
  • The R3M Project (Reducing Maternal Mortality and Morbidity) supports family planning and long-term and permanent contraceptives in Ghana.   
  • The RESPOND Project aims to increase access to a range of contraceptives, with particular focus on long-acting and permanent methods. These effective methods (implants, IUDs, and male and female sterilization) remain underutilized in many developing countries, even though they are safe, convenient, and cost-effective.
  • The RESPOND Tanzania Project addresses Tanzania's unmet contraceptive need, by advancing the use of family planning and reproductive health services in Tanzania amongst women, men, and adolescents.
In addition, some of EngenderHealth's major projects have ended recently.
