Take a look at the work our partners are doing in Malawi, enabling women to take control of their reproductive choices. #selfcare4srhr https://t.co/0TI2WdTeNT

I want to see more women making decisions, controlling resources, & shaping policies. That’s why I’m committing $1B over the next 10 years to expanding women’s power & influence in the U.S. #EqualityCantWait, & no one in a position to act should either. https://t.co/Rh6SkRH0ma

Condoms and Conversations in Togo

Emefa Agotame is a 25-year-old sex worker in Lomé, Togo, with a fiery streak of red running through her hair. Emefa has had five children, but two passed away in their early childhood. After that experience, she started to receive condoms and other forms of contraception from Petite Soeur à Soeur, an organization supported by EngenderHealth’s Agir pour la Planification Familiale (AgirPF) program, which provides counseling on family planning, sexually transmitted infections, and HIV.

Multidimensional Approaches to Enhance Access to Reproductive Health in Ethiopia

Over the last 15 years, Ethiopia has expanded access to family planning (FP) services, and the contraceptive prevalence rate (CPR) has quadrupled, from 8% in 2000 to 36% in 2016 (CSA & ORC Macro, 2001; CSA & ICF, 2016). However, unmet need for FP in Ethiopia hovers around 22% (CSA & ICF, 2016), with contraceptive prevalence still relatively low. Ethiopia’s maternal mortality ratio (MMR) has fallen dramatically, from 676 per 100,000 live births in the period since the last Demographic and Health Survey (DHS) in 2011, to 412 deaths in the 2016 DHS, but it is still high. While the share of abortions performed within health facilities in Ethiopia (assumed to be the safest option) increased between 2008 and 2014, the number of women seeking treatment for abortion-related complications still almost doubled over the same time period (Ipas & Guttmacher Institute, 2017), indicating a need for high-quality safe abortion services and postabortion care.

Reality Check and Pipeline: Two Complementary Tools for Planning and Contraceptive Forecasting

National commitments to family planning such as those made by dozens of countries as part of the FP2020 global partnership are key to increasing access to family planning for women worldwide. Attaining these commitments requires being able to plan for and ensure a reliable supply of quality contraceptives and adequate financial investment. EngenderHealth and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) | DELIVER PROJECT are pleased to announce a new resource, Using Reality Check and PipeLine for Contraceptive Forecasting and Supply Planning.
