Partnership is fundamental to every aspect of EngenderHealth’s work, across geographies and technical areas. In the countries where we work, we have strong, often long-standing relationships with national and local governments, health-system authorities, and associations of healthcare professionals. We work closely with national and local civil society organizations, including youth- and women-led organizations, as well as media outlets. Increasingly, we bring value to and appreciate the contributions of private-sector partners whose interests align with our own. And, guided by our people-centered approach and our emphasis on meaningful youth participation, we view the people our programs are designed to serve as critical partners in program development, implementation, and evaluation. Information on specific partnerships is available in the Programs section of this website.
At the regional and global levels, EngenderHealth collaborates with, shares knowledge with, and learns from other international organizations and multilateral institutions, through individual partnerships and participation in different types of coalitions and consortia. Examples include the Child, Early & Forced Marriage & Unions and Sexuality Working Group, the Implementing Best Practices (IBP) Network, the Inter-Agency Working Group (IAWG) on Reproductive Health in Crises, the MenEngage Alliance, the Reproductive Health Supplies Coalition (RHSC), the Self-Care Trailblazer Group (SCTG), Share-Net International, and the United Nations Global Compact. We also actively engage in conferences and events where the global sexual and reproductive health and rights and gender equality communities come together.
Finally, EngenderHealth is proud to partner with a wide range of donors—from individuals and foundations to bilateral development cooperation agencies and multilateral institutions—without whose support and encouragement our work would not be possible.
