Grants to this Grantee
for building the capacity of African policymakers for reproductive health issues
The grant will enable Partners in Population and Development’s Africa Regional Office (PPD ARO) to continue to strengthen the capacity of African policymakers to ensure family planning and reproductive health are prioritized in policy and budgeting processes. PPD ARO will work toward four intermediate outcomes: increased knowledge of the links between family planning, reproductive health, and development by policymakers; increased funding for family planning and reproductive health by national governments and international donors; improved accountability for family planning and reproductive health commitments by African countries; and expanded cooperation and sharing of best practices among developing country governments.
for building the capacity of African policy makers for reproductive health issues
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.
