Our Impact

Today is #GivingTuesday, a day to give back & to kick off the giving season. You can give the gift of safe, secure #reproductivehealth to women and girls around the world, and whatever amount you give, it will be doubled.
#familyplanning
#SRHR

Sexual and gender-based violence undermines the health, dignity, security and autonomy of women and girls.
Yet #SGBV remains shrouded in a culture of silence.
📣 Speaking out
brings us a step closer towards justice & healing.

We’re inspired! Over the last four days, we asked delegates at #ICFP2018 to share their commitments to #familyplanning. We heard from youth advocates, leaders, activists, scientists, researchers, and more!

Videos

We’ve produced hundreds of videos over the years. Some record the amazing stories of the people we help. Others were developed as part of our campaigns and projects around the world. Below are some of the latest and the best.

 


Watch this compelling video, where the traditional Ethiopian coffee ceremony is integrated with a community-based intervention to provide information, improve gender equity and intra-couple relations, and change norms and behavior around intimate partner violence and HIV.


 

Listen as students and facilitators introduce EngenderHealth’s Re:MIX, a comprehensive sexual health program aimed at preparing youth for healthy futures by reducing rates of unplanned pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections (STIs).

Re:MIX pairs peer educators who are young parents with professional health educators to cofacilitate this health curriculum among a target population of 13–17-year-olds. In addition to the curriculum, the intervention includes a professional development, leadership, and mentoring program for the peer educators and a community health services linkage system that connects youth and peer educators with community resources and services through an online mobile app.

The curriculum is being delivered by a team of peer educators who are young parents and by health educators from local community clinics. The innovative curriculum utilizes game-based tools, technology, and storytelling to provide students with opportunities to learn and practice the crucial skills that teens need, while integrating hip hop and theater techniques to meet young people where they are, culturally and socially.

The program also emphasizes the impact that empowerment and positive youth development have on young parents by providing them with professional development and leadership programming. The digital story series (above) is an expression of their personal growth and development.

 


EngenderHealth’s Expanding Access to Intrauterine Device Services in India (EAISI) project works to expand women’s access to and use of contraception in two states of India—Rajasthan and Gujarat. Learn more about EAISI in the words of the clients and providers who have learned and benefited from the project.

 


The controversial Global Gag Rule prohibits international family planning organizations receiving U.S. aid from providing information, counseling, or referrals related to abortion—even if using their own non-U.S. funding and even if the practices are legal in their own countries.

When reinstated as a matter of law, the GGR has terrible consequences for women and their families. While it was in effect between 2001 and 2009, the policy forced clinics to cut back on a range of critical health services that have nothing to do with abortion, such as family planning, obstetric care, HIV testing, and malaria treatment.

The GGR was first adopted in 1984 by President Ronald Reagan but has since been removed and reinstated several times. President Obama rescinded the policy when he took office in January 2009. President Donald J. Trump reinstated the Global Gag Rule in 2017.

 


Through the ACQUIRE Project, EngenderHealth partnered with the Center for Digital Storytelling and St. Joseph’s Hospital in Uganda to coordinate a workshop for Ugandan women who have experienced obstetric fistula. The resulting videos recount hardships and celebrate achievements related to their daily struggles with pregnancy, loss, relationships, as well as their search for safety, acceptance, and dignity.

 


From the beginning of time, women have wanted to decide for themselves if and when to have children. As a result, they’ve endured some of history’s worst contraceptives. It’ll make you say, “Ewww.” So, WTFP?! Where’s The Family Planning?!
