World Vision is implementing a USAID-funded Healthy Timing and Spacing of Pregnancies/Family Planning (HTSP/FP) Project through a grant from the Advancing Partners & Communities Project (APC) in Northeastern Kenya in Garba Tulla. Mothers attending antenatal and maternal, neonatal, and child health (MNCH) services are responsive to discussions about HTSP and receiving voluntary FP care. Reaching male partners who accompany their wives at MNCH and antenatal visits is also an opportunity to provide men with FP counseling and contraceptive methods. The project aims to increase access to and demand for voluntary FP care through integrating FP/HTSP into MNCH care and promoting male and religious leader involvement in related discussions. By working with the Ministry of Health (MOH) at five health facilities, the project has supported 120 community health volunteers and rolled out a strategy to engage men and religious leaders to strengthen demand and use voluntary FP methods. FP information and services were also provided at MNCH, antenatal, and postnatal visits.
