Côte d’Ivoire

Home to more than nearly 20 million people, Côte d’Ivoire is the second largest economy in West Africa. Yet strains from past political and economic upheaval have impacted the country’s fragile health system. As a result, women and their families face limited access to reproductive health and family planning services. Additionally, limited knowledge about HIV transmission and low condom use, among other factors, have contributed to a 3.7% adult HIV prevalence, among the highest in West Africa.

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.
