Our Countries

We love this #vintage ad from @FPACharity advocating getting educated on #familyplanning ! It is as important today as it has ever been. #WheresTheFP #TBT

Pig intestines used as condoms?!? See this and more of History's Worst Contraceptives here: https://t.co/JZHqdN401r #WherestheFP #TBT

The face of vulnerability is adolescent girls & key populations. We need to think about #SDGs & what it means to live w full dignity. Prevention implies access to information, timely respectful services & understanding we are in a time of crisis. @UNFPA

We love the implant & all other forms of #contraception allowing millions to plan & space #pregnancies. How #empowering is that?! #WheresTheFP

Our wisdom: increasing access to #familyplanning helps women go further in their education, work & life! #WheresTheFP

A 16-year-old girl living with HIV asked for a hug. This is how people responded.


Leaving no one behind means placing women at the center of the decision-making spaces in the HIV response. https://t.co/kNhzGjBbrp #AIDS2018 @AIDS_Conference

Breaking out of our echo chambers: cutting through the noise with creative storytelling about HIV. https://t.co/BiKfwjh98k. #AIDS2018

Human rights are far more than just inspiring words. They are the foundations of our progress, indispensable for peace and sustainable development. https://t.co/a1HgGD42zS via @antonioguterres

Cape Verde

Cape Verde, an island nation off the northwest coast of Africa, has made marked improvements in health care during the past decade. Maternal and infant mortality have fallen, and efforts are in place to help this trend continue. As part of the Action for West Africa Region—Reproductive Health (AWARE-RH) Project, EngenderHealth worked with local partners in Cape Verde to increase access to postabortion care.

Increasing Access to Postabortion Care Services
When a woman has had an unsafe abortion she needs timely care to ensure that her long-term health, and her life, is safeguarded.  In Cape Verde, EngenderHealth trained 14 health care workers to provide comprehensive postabortion care services, including counseling, referral, and infection prevention.  In addition, our work encouraged the integration of postabortion care into routine maternal care services.

EngenderHealth’s work in Cape Verde ended in 2008.
