EngenderHealth's Adolescent Girl Champions intervention is significant because it is an innovative, scalable model that builds on and collaborates with existing public health infrastructure, while empowering adolescent girls.

Senegal

In Senegal, the maternal mortality rate is 315 deaths for every 100,000 live births, while the annual abortion rate is 17 per 1,000 women and girls aged 15-44 (and higher in Dakar at 21 per 1,000). Notably, around 26% of married Senegalese women have an unmet need for modern contraception.

EngenderHealth works in Senegal to implement the Postabortion Care-Family Planning (PAC-FP) project, which aims to accelerate efforts to reduce unmet need for contraception and contribute to reductions in preventable maternal deaths by developing, documenting, and evaluating models for increasing the quality and availability of family planning services (particularly long-acting reversible contraceptives) during postabortion care.
