Grants to this Grantee
for support of EngenderHealth's programs and strategy in West Africa
This supplemental grant will support EngenderHealth to expand its program for sexual and reproductive health and rights in Francophone West Africa particularly in Benin. In late 2021, Benin’s parliament voted to legalize abortion in most circumstances, the first country in the region to do so. EngenderHealth already had a small program focused on abortion advocacy in Benin and is well positioned to expand its work plan in Benin to prepare for and support the implementation of this new reproductive right. This work is aligned with the Global Reproductive Equity strategy outcome to make safe abortion legal and accessible in Francophone West Africa.
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.
