EngenderHealth trains public sector health professionals to provide high-quality reproductive health services in more than 20 countries. This grant will support EngenderHealth’s organizational priorities during the grant period, which include work to train health care providers, offer supervision at health sites, and work with governments to secure the availability of contraceptive and other supplies. EngenderHealth also plans to play a global leadership role in promoting a woman’s right to choose her preferred contraceptive method and testing various models of how to protect these rights in public health care systems.

Grants to this Grantee
for support of equity in global sexual and reproductive health and rights organizations
for general operating support
In partnership with governments and communities in more than twenty countries, EngenderHealth trains public sector health professionals to provide high-quality maternal health, family planning, and HIV and AIDS services. With this funding, EngenderHealth will continue to train health care providers, offer facilitative supervision at health sites, and ensure the availability of commodities and supplies. It will work closely with country partners to advocate for policies that support strong, functioning health systems at all levels and encourage individuals, families, and communities to seek family planning and reproductive health services.
for a tool to improve family planning services
EngenderHealth is requesting funds to develop a prototype tool kit, called Checkpoints for Choice, that will help policymakers, health care providers, and community members identify whether women's choices about contraception are respected when they receive family planning services. The goal of this project is to provide these constituencies with an evidence-based and concrete tool to promote and protect reproductive rights and contraceptive choice. This project grant reflects the Global Development and Population Program’s stronger emphasis on fostering specific improvements in access to and quality of family planning services, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa.
