July 11, 2017 - Update: At the 2012 London Summit on Family Planning, Jhpiego committed US $200,000 to support family planning innovations in Burkina Faso. That investment has resulted in more than $7 million to expand method choice, and specifically, increasing access to quality postpartum family planning (PPFP). What began as a pilot to introduce services in 5 public facilities was expanded to 25—with plans to scale up to remaining regions. With additional funding from UNFPA and an anonymous donor, the program developed the capacity of local partners to accelerate PPFP adoption, thereby aiding the Government of Burkina Faso’s progress toward their FP2020 goal. Today, women in Burkina Faso are better able to plan their families.  

Over the next three years, Jhpiego will provide US $500,000 to implement and advocate for programs and policies that increase access to family planning for adolescents and first-time parents, expand uptake of PPFP, and prepare frontline health workers to deliver quality family planning services. In Uganda and Ghana, we will introduce interventions to empower first-time parents to ensure healthy timing and spacing of future births and provide lifesaving information on breastfeeding and newborn care. Furthermore, Jhpiego commits to supporting West African governments in achieving their FP2020 commitments.

JHPIEGO commits to providing new, incremental funds in the amount of US $200,000 to support innovations in the provision of implant/injectable services at the community-level, using front-line health workers.
