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

Liberia

Years of civil war during the 1990s took a toll on the health of Liberia’s people, and child health in particular suffered. With an infant mortality rate of 138 per 1,000 births, Liberia has one of the highest infant death rates in the world. EngenderHealth worked with Liberia’s Ministry of Health to help improve child survival by combating malaria, a common cause of death and disease in young children.

EngenderHealth’s Projects
Liberia was one of 21 West African nations that participated in the Action for West Africa Region-Reproductive Health (AWARE-RH) Project, funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and led by EngenderHealth. From its launch in 2003 to its close in 2008, the AWARE-RH project in Liberia:

  • Sponsored training for the country’s Ministry of Health staff;
  • Proposed new malaria protocols and supported a government increase in available budget for malaria prevention and treatment.

Additionally, EngenderHealth’s Fistula Care project has worked in Liberia.  Fistula Care activities there were implemented by Mercy Ships International via its floating hospital, the Africa Mercy, which was moored in Monrovia, Liberia.
