for support of in-country advocacy partnerships
This grant will support Population Action International (PAI) to implement the Reproductive Health Advocacy Partnership (RHAP) in Zambia and Malawi. Through multiyear general operating support and sustained technical assistance, PAI partners with civil society organizations (CSOs) to invest in their institutional and advocacy capacity using a principled approach grounded in flexibility, shared learning, and mutual accountability. Through this approach, CSOs aim to advance sexual and reproductive health policies and funding at the country and regional levels. During the grant period, PAI and CSO partners seek to influence philanthropic practice by documenting and disseminating best practices from the RHAP model. (Substrategy: Local Advocacy)
for improving government accountability for family planning services and supplies in Africa
