COVID-19: How We’re Responding

Our Work

For decades, EngenderHealth has improved the lives of men, women, and families through its work in family planning, maternal health, HIV and AIDS, gender equity, and many other programs.

Through the @Hewlett_Found-supported project in West and Central Africa, we partner with @JVSAssociation in Bénin to create an enabling environment for youth access to #SRHR, including safe abortions.

Check out their "My Choice" twitter campaign! ⬇️

In anticipation of International Women’s Day on March 8, we’ll spend the week highlighting programs that are contributing to a more gender equal world. Stay tuned for #InternationalWomensDay Spotlights!

Addressing fistula is key to advancing #SRHR.

Since 2005, EngenderHealth has supported over 45,000 fistula repairs thanks to @USAID. Learn about advancements in fistula care across Africa & Asia at our event on March 8: http://bit.ly/FCPlus-Webinar

The @USAID-funded @fistulacare project takes a diverse approach to reducing barriers to fistula care. A key component of preventing fistula is expanding access to high-quality sexual and reproductive health services.

EngenderHealth supports capacity building & GBV awareness creation at Arbaminch Hospital, an integrated care center for GBV screening, counseling, treatment, and legal aid in Ethiopia. We were honored to host state officials to learn about successes & challenges in this model.

Thanks everyone! The FC+ website is a great place to start for more information and resources on fistula prevention and treatment, including research results, project reports, and stories from providers and clients. http://bit.ly/fistularesources https://twitter.com/EngenderHealth/status/1364608432880443393

Obstetric fistula is a beacon of inequality, as it occurs where women are already living with limited resources and access to healthcare. Additionally, once fistula occurs, women often face significant stigma and isolation which can impact their social and economic wellbeing. https://twitter.com/EngenderHealth/status/1364605591528886273

Advancing Family Planning

Across the globe, we have proven that even in resource-poor settings, family planning services can be safe, effective, and affordable. Learn about our work in contraception, informed choice, and more.

Maternal Health

Our approach to maternal health is holistic, addressing women’s sexual and reproductive health needs throughout their lives. We work to equip health facilities with medical supplies and well-trained staff to provide high-quality services.

Youth-Centered Programs

EngenderHealth believes in comprehensive sexuality education, providing age-appropriate information consistent with the evolving capacities of young people. Our adolescent/youth-friendly services are accessible, acceptable, equitable, appropriate, and effective.

Gender Equality

We are committed to achieving gender equality through sexual and reproductive health and rights programs. We work through gender-equitable approaches to ensure women and girls can access quality sexual and reproductive health information and services.

HIV, AIDS, and Sexually Transmitted Infections

To help overcome the global HIV epidemic, we train health providers, improve health services, and advocate for national and international policies that respond to the needs of people living with HIV.

Engaging Men As Partners in Reproductive Health

Addressing gender issues is essential to improving the health of both women and men. Through our Men As Partners program and other initiatives, we mobilize men to support their partners’ reproductive health, promote gender equity, and reduce gender-based violence.

Improving Clinical Quality

We improve the quality of health care by training providers to be responsive and informative, to prevent infection at the facility, and to increase communication among staff. Our pioneering COPE® process has been adapted around the world.

Advocacy and Policy

We work locally, globally, and in the United States to influence evidence-based policy change that will lead to lasting improvements in reproductive health care services.

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 range from global to country-specific.
