The ACQUIRE Project
EngenderHealth was the managing partner of the ACQUIRE Project (Access, Quality, and Use in Reproductive Health), a global cooperative agreement supported by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). ACQUIRE advanced and supported the availability, quality, and use of facility-based reproductive health and family planning services at every level of the health care system and strengthened links between facilities and communities.
From 2003 to 2008, ACQUIRE was involved in efforts to:
- Revitalize family planning
- Integrate family planning services with HIV, maternal health care, and postabortion care services
- Enhance the quality of comprehensive HIV services
- Scale up services through networks
- Blend and scale up proven approaches for improving performance and quality
- Promote "knowledge to practice" to improve program performance and effectiveness
ACQUIRE's global work ended in 2008; however, work continues under ACQUIRE in several countries around the world -- such as the ACQUIRE Tanzania Project (ATP) -- through USAID Associate Awards.
