The grant would allow Partners in Population and Development’s Africa Regional Office (PPD ARO) to advocate for increased funding and improved policies for family planning and reproductive health and to hold African governments accountable for progress against commitments made through such international agreements as the Family Planning Summit (FP2020) and the Maputo Plan of Action. Since its inception in 2007, PPD ARO has used its relationships with African policy makers to develop high-level leadership for family planning and reproductive health in the fourteen member countries, and contributed to several policy wins such as securing approval for community health workers to provide injectable contraceptives in Uganda. During the grant period, PPD ARO plans to increase its regional impact by focusing on specific funding and policy targets and engaging with key decision makers and influential leaders.
