Advance Family Planning (AFP) and Population Action International (PAI) are bolstering family planning advocacy efforts in francophone West Africa, awarding more than $100,000 to civil society groups in three countries.
The awards will help civil society groups in Benin, Burkina Faso, and Mauritania to work with local and national governments to create or increase budget lines for contraceptives. In Mauritania, the funding will also support an effort to create a national reproductive health law.
