With funding from the Swift Foundation, Pathfinder worked with local stakeholders and the National Department of Health to establish quality reproductive health facilities with access to community based and health promotion services.

Continuous knowledge exchange, awareness building, and sensitization activities took place over the final months of the project to increase contraceptive prevalence and safer sexual behavior. Pathfinder conducted sixty community sensitization workshops for chiefs, village elders, religious leaders, and other traditional and elected leaders. In the past six months, more than 6,300 family planning visits were conducted by trained staff.
