Country Program in Review: Benin

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.

APC is honored to have been a part of Benin’s remarkable progress. The project forged strong, trusting partnerships with the MOH and other ministries, local government, private sector, nongovernmental organizations, and communities. APC’s work advanced health in Benin because of consistent financial and technical support from its donor and other international partners, particularly the United Nations Population Fund, UNICEF, and the Gates Foundation. APC focused on achieving its core objectives while responding to new developments and requests from USAID and the MOH.
