Equilibres & Populations

For A Project To Support Sexual And Reproductive Health Advocacy In West Africa

The recommended grant would support advocacy efforts by Equilibres et Populations (EquiPop) for increased funding and favorable policies for sexual and reproductive health in Francophone West Africa. EquiPop plans to strengthen the capacity of civil society organizations in West Africa—initially in Benin, Burkina Faso, and Niger—to be more effective advocates, including by forming strategic partnerships and improving communications skills. EquiPop’s regional office in Burkina Faso will provide ongoing programmatic support for local advocacy. Its Paris headquarters will continue to ensure support for sexual and reproductive health from the French government and the European Union.

Grants to this Grantee
for support of in-country advocacy partnerships  
This grant will support Equilibres & Populations (EquiPop) to work with over 20 civil society organizations in six countries in Francophone West Africa to advocate more effectively to advance sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR). As an advocacy partner, EquiPop plans to strengthen the capacity of country-based organizations by providing financial and tailored technical support, and by working closely with them to ensure decision makers at the national, regional, and global levels are held accountable for their commitments to advance SRHR. By using media channels such as radio, building local champions, and hosting public debates, EquiPop also intends to mobilize citizen support.
