Depuis sa création, le Partenariat de Ouagadougou (PO) œuvre pour l’amélioration et la promotion de la santé reproductive et l’accès à l’information et aux services de planification familiale dans la sous région Ouest Africaine Francophone. Pour optimiser cette lutte, les Gouvernements, les donateurs du PO, et les partenaires de mise en œuvre locaux et internationaux se sont appuyés sur les organisations de la société civile (OSC) y compris les organisations locales basées dans les neuf pays du PO afin d’identifier les besoins et les priorités en matière de santé reproductive au sein de leurs communautés.

Madagascar has remarkable biodiversity with 80% of its flora and fauna found nowhere else in the world. While its economy is highly reliant on natural resources, significant unmet health and economic needs drive unsustainable practices. In the face of growing uncertainty—Madagascar is extremely susceptible to climate change—we spoke to Madagascar PHE Network Coordinator Nantenaina Tahiry Andriamalala about how early population, health, and environment (PHE) successes have led to a rich network of organizations working to address health and conservation needs in tandem.
The East African countries of Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, and Rwanda seem to have one common challenge in the implementation of family planning and reproductive health programs—knowledge management. The countries are rich in family planning and reproductive health knowledge, but such information is fragmented and not shared. To tackle the identified challenges, Knowledge SUCCESS mobilized family planning and reproductive health stakeholders in the region to address the knowledge management jigsaw puzzle.
