In the last few years, Ethiopians have increased their use of modern family planning contraceptives. Building on this new momentum, USAID works to improve the health of mothers, neonates, children, adolescents and youth by decreasing unintended and teenage pregnancies. In addition to improving access to family planning services and contraceptives, USAID also supports strengthening the capacity of these programs through community mobilization as well as detection, referral, treatment and reintegration of Fistula cases.

Activities include

  • Support for International Family Planning (SIFPO): Increase access to and utilization of voluntary, high-quality family planning services. By strengthening organizational capacity and sustainability of country-level programs, SIFPO contributes to reductions in fertility and maternal and child mortality.

  • Program Research for Strengthening Services (PROGRESS): Work closely with the Government of Ethiopia to increase skills in monitoring and evaluating family planning initiatives.

  • Integrated Family Health Program: Improve family health by strengthening and promoting increased use of high-impact family planning, maternal, newborn and child health practices, products and services.

  • Central Contraceptive Procurement: Ensure access to and availability of modern contraceptives by procuring contraceptives for the Integrated Family Health Program service delivery network in public health facilities

  • Maternal Child Health Integrated Program (MCHIP): Support efforts to curb maternal and newborn morbidity and mortality by expanding Integrated Family Health Project initiatives i.e. through post-partum FP.
