In 2014, APC awarded a 21month grant to the Nyanza Reproductive Health Society (NRHS) to implement the Sustainable Health and People’s Environment in Lake Victoria Basin (SHAPELVB) intervention. SHAPELVB built the capacity of local partners to integrate community-based family planning (CBFP) into their ongoing population, health, and environment (PHE)-related activities.
The CHS Catalog draws from policies and related documentation across 25 countries with specific attention to family planning. It is intended for policymakers, program managers, researchers, and donors interested in learning more about the current state of community health systems.
The tool provides views of indicators related to the sexual & reproductive health of people ages 10 to 24 years in select countries in Asia and the Middle East.
