Every time a woman speaks up about her experience of sexual violence and she’s not believed, rape culture flourishes. Every time you hear a survivor’s story: 1-Listen. 2-Believe. 3-Support. https://t.co/FG2M7sWbdk #orangetheworld #GenerationEquality

Great session! One takeaway from Maria Bakaroudis of @UNFPA_ESARO: Training and supportive supervision of healthcare providers on rights and needs of people with disabilities is key for provision of respectful care & inclusive health services #ICASA2019Rwanda #ICASA2019

Burkina Faso

Maternal mortality and morbidity rates in Burkina Faso are among the highest in the world. A Burkinabe woman dies from pregnancy-related complications every three hours, and for each maternal death that occurs, 20 to 30 women suffer from pregnancy-related disabilities. Approximately 29% of Burkinabe women have an unmet need for modern contraception, and maternal and newborn health programs remain severely under-funded in Burkina Faso.

In 2013, EngenderHealth and the U.S. Agency for International Development/West Africa launched Agir pour la Planification Familiale (AgirPF), a five-year program designed to expand women’s access to and use of family planning services in five West African countries. It began work in Côte d’Ivoire in 2014.By educating communities on the benefits of contraception, training providers to deliver quality services, and expanding access in underserved communities, we will work to increase informed decision making about family planning and broaden voluntary use of contraceptives.
