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.
