A new contract to improve family planning service delivery

A new contract to improve family planning service delivery

African Alternatives: 5-6

The Population Council is responsible for the new USAID-funded Africa OR/TA (operations research/technical assistance) Project II. Project II activities will likely take place in Ghana, Kenya, Mali, and Zimbabwe, and maybe Nigeria and Uganda. The focus of planned OR activities include testing new approaches in reproductive health; sexually transmitted diseases; improving adolescents' access to family planning; documentation of the availability, functioning, and quality of health and family planning service delivery points (SDPs); development of indigenous approaches to community-based distribution; promotion of new and underutilized regulation methods; reduction of septic abortions through greater access to contraceptive services; incorporation of gender concerns in family planning programs; and testing postpartum family planning strategies. Between 1984 and 1998, the project will use OR extensively to examine the efficiency of integrated family planning and reproductive health programs. TA will include providing information and recommendations to program managers and policy decision makers about strategies to improve programs. Some project goals are to develop client-oriented service delivery strategies that are acceptable to different population groups and to improve the operations of programs so they can become more efficient and financially sustainable. Project II staff will use lessons learned from the Africa OR/TA Project I to improve service delivery and quality of care during 1993-1998.
