After nearly seven years in partnership with the Beninese government to strengthen community health systems and advance policies to support family planning, the APC project closing event on Thursday, May 23, was a time to showcase its successes and share challenges and lessons.

Journal Article

Read the journal article in Global Health: Science and Practice journal by APC/Benin staff about community health workers and facility-based health care providers who were trained to administer DMPA-SC safely and effectively in 10 health zones.

Project Highlight

Since 2012, the APC project has provided global leadership and support to 22 countries to overcome barriers to accessing voluntary family planning by strengthening community-based service delivery systems. APC’s community-based FP achievements are rooted in tailored, flexible approaches to meet the range and diversity of challenges across and within countries.

Report

Between September 2012 and April 2019, APC supported community health programs in Benin, primarily in 10 USAID priority health zones and at the national level. The project focused on three main areas: 1) helping Benin reach its community health goals; 2) expanding and strengthening the country’s package of key health services and practices; and 3) institutionalizing and expanding community-based family planning.

Fact Sheet

Entre septembre 2012 et avril 2019, le projet APC financé par l’USAID et mis en oeuvre par JSI Research & Training Institute, Inc. et FHI 360, en partenariat avec le Ministère de la Santé du Bénin, a renforcé le système de santé communautaire dans le pays.

Afin d'améliorer la couverture sanitaire, le gouvernement béninois a lancé un ensemble d'interventions sanitaires fondées sur des données factuelles, dénommé PIHI (paquet d'interventions à haut impact), en 2010. À compter de 2012, le projet Avancement des Partenariats et des Communautés (APC) financé par l'USAID a aidé trois organisations non gouvernementales (ONG) et le Ministère de la Santé à introduire cet ensemble de services dans dix zones sanitaires prioritaires de l'USAID par les relais communautaires (RC). Avec l'aide d'APC, les ONG ont formé des RC et ont fourni un soutien et une supervision permanents pour mettre en oeuvre le PIHI dans leurs communautés.

To improve health, the Government of Benin launched a package of evidence-based health interventions, known as PIHI (paquet d’interventions à haut impact), in 2010. APC helped three NGOs and the Ministry of Health introduce this package of services in ten USAID-priority health zones through community health workers. With APC assistance, the NGOs trained CHWs and provided ongoing support and supervision to deliver the PIHI in their communities.

Since 2010, community health workers have provided education and services as part of the MOH’s package of basic health services and practices, known as PIHI. Critical to healthy, thriving communities, PIHI services help improve health areas related to malaria; water, sanitation, and hygiene; maternal and child health; nutrition; and family planning.
