In 2012, Jhpiego committed US$200,000 to support family planning innovations in Burkina Faso. That investment has resulted in more than US$7 million to expand method choice and increased access to quality postpartum family planning (PPFP). What began as a pilot to introduce services in five 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. In 2017, Jhpiego revitalized its commitment, pledging to provide US$500,000 over the next three years 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, Jhpiego 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 committed to supporting West African governments in achieving their FP2020 commitments.
