In Côte d'Ivoire the Population Council has worked to improve reproductive health and primary health care services, analyzed data on child mortality, and investigated preferences regarding reproductive health product formulation.
Currently Côte d'Ivoire is one of 11 countries participating in the African Forum on Emergency Contraception, or ECafrique, a network that seeks to increase the availability of high-quality emergency contraception (EC) services in Africa.
Highlights of past and present work
- Supports research, advocacy, and service-delivery interventions at the country level as a member of ECafrique, a bilingual, international network of health care and business professionals from more than 200 institutions that seeks to increase the availability of high-quality emergency contraception (EC) services in Africa.
- Provided technical assistance to the Ministry of Health in implementing a four-year project funded by UNFPA to establish integrated and effective reproductive health, family planning, STI, HIV/AIDS, and primary health care services at the community level.
