This grant would support the Population Council’s Reproductive Health and Poverty, Gender, and Youth programs to conduct research on ways to increase the use of family planning and reproductive health services in sub-Saharan Africa. During the grant period, the Council plans to focus on understanding the reasons for stalls in fertility decline in some settings, analyzing the demographic impact of investing in adolescent reproductive health, and expanding access to comprehensive family planning services in Francophone West Africa. The Council would also support global advocacy on these issues, including the promotion of safe and comprehensive abortion care.
