Our Work

The @whatwomenwanthc campaign is calling on young women and girls around the world to share what’s important to them when it comes to maternal and #reproductivehealth. Take the survey and ask the women and girls in your community to do the same: https://t.co/c55LT113iJ

Until #familyplanning is a universally available choice in all settings, this human right will not be fully realized.

At #UNGA, @UNFPA and partners are calling for the fulfillment of this unrealized right: https://t.co/pjB2z7Ilwr

The issue of #familyplanning is about women’s agency.

Even if a service is available in the community, it’s not effective if women cannot access it. #EWECisME @WorldBank

Expanding access to #contraception & #familyplanning programs is one of the most cost-effective ways to break the cycle of poverty." #FP2020

Integration with HIV and AIDS Services

With care and treatment for HIV and AIDS becoming increasingly accessible, people living with HIV are regaining their health, living longer, and planning for their futures—which include the possibility of starting or expanding a family. Accordingly, people living with HIV and AIDS need access to comprehensive reproductive health care, including family planning and information on preventing mother-to-child transmission of HIV.

EngenderHealth was an early advocate of integrating HIV services with other sexual and reproductive health services, such as family planning and maternal health. Integrating health services is a successful strategy that leverages existing and scarce resources, without placing an undue burden on health care systems. For example, when a client visits a doctor for HIV services, it presents an opportunity to address his or her other reproductive health and family planning needs and vice versa, either by providing these services under one roof or by strengthening referrals for care. Conversely, people who receive family planning services should also learn about HIV and how to best protect themselves and their partners.

EngenderHealth is implementing projects that link sexual and reproductive health and HIV services in Brazil, Côte d’Ivoire, Ghana, India, Kenya, TanzaniaUganda, and many others. We help people living with HIV advocate for access to quality treatment, care, and reproductive health services by partnering with national networks of people living with HIV. EngenderHealth also calls on the international community, national governments, health facilities and providers, and local communities to empower people living with HIV and to expand their access to quality sexual and reproductive health services.
