Grants to this Grantee
for support of human-centered design in rural Kenya  
This project will build on previous support to Marie Stopes International-US (MSI-US) for using human-centered design to improve adolescent reproductive health services in Kenya. A prior grant resulted in the design and creation of the "Future Fab" program, which has significantly increased the number of 15- to 19-year-olds using Marie Stopes’ services in urban and peri-urban areas. This project will support MSI-US to collaborate with a human-centered design firm to create an approach that will reach the large number of 15- to 19-year-olds in rural areas through Marie Stopes’ mobile outreach teams.
for support of MSI's Sahel program  
Marie Stopes International-US (MSI) provides reproductive health services to women and men in four countries in the Sahel region of Africa: Burkina Faso, Mali, Niger, and Senegal. Due to the reinstatement of the Mexico City Policy, MSI will lose approximately 30 percent of its annual U.S. government funding for Sahel program activities. This flexible funding will smooth the transition while MSI secures funding from other sources.
for support for human-centered design in the Sahel  
This support will allow Marie Stopes International-US (MSI) to build on its experience with human-centered design and apply the new approach to reaching 15- to 19-year-olds with contraception in its Sahel program countries. The current collaboration between MSI and in Zambia and Kenya has shown promise in increasing the number of young people using MSI’s services, and MSI will use the same approach in the Sahel, starting in Burkina Faso.
