Niamey, Niger: The United States Government, through the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), has launched Agir pour la Planification Familiale (AgirPF), a five-year regional family planning project to be implemented in five countries: Niger, Burkina Faso, Côte d’Ivoire, Mauritania, and Togo.

To respond to the high unmet need for family planning in West Africa and recognizing the region’s growing urbanization, AgirPF aims to increase access to and use of quality family planning services in urban areas using hospitals and health centers as well as mobile outreach and community-based services. More specifically, AgirPF will: 1) expand access to family planning counseling and a range of contraceptive methods; 2) promote healthy family planning behaviors; and 3) increase awareness of the benefits of family planning.
