Integrating Health and Family Planning Into Environment and Natural Resource Management, Food Security and Livelihoods Programs In Ghana

The Advancing Partners & Communities (APC) project invites local, regional and international organizations currently implementing programs focused on environment and natural resource management, food security, resilience, and/or livelihoods program in Ghana to submit applications for a population, health and environment (PHE) project to advance community-based family planning (CBPF) and other health services through the use of an integrated PHE approach. One subgrant for up to $175,000 USD, for a period of up to twelve months, will be awarded to carry out activities to meet the following objectives:

  1. Integrate CBFP and other health services (e.g. malaria) into an existing environment and natural resource management, food security, resilience, or livelihoods program.
  2. Increase access to CBFP services (including community-based distribution of selected contraceptives) and referral for other methods.
  3. Work closely with APC to build the organizational capacity and/or close links with government or other service delivery partners to continue providing services after the project ends.
  4. Collect and analyze data to add to the global body of knowledge on the impact a PHE model can have on sustainability and the feasibility of integrating CBFP and health into ongoing environment and natural resource management, food security, resilience, livelihoods or similar projects.
