Grants to this Grantee
for support of a regional program to reduce unsafe abortion in francophone West Africa  
This grant will support Population Services International (PSI) to continue expanding its safe abortion program in Francophone West Africa. PSI will use insights about women’s preferences to increase reproductive health options and use commercial marketing techniques and provider training to promote new products in several countries in West Africa. It will also test innovative models that require less infrastructure to distribute reproductive health products and look for opportunities to provide alternatives for women who otherwise would seek an unsafe abortion.
