Togo kicks off US-backed family program

(Togo First) - The USAID-funded ExpandPF program was launched in Togo yesterday, March 27th. The program was launched by Prof. Moustafa Mijiyawa, Minister of Health. This program aims to improve access to and utilization of quality family planning services across the country.

This five-year program will be implemented at 40 healthcare sites spread across three districts, the Est-Mono, Haho, and Kloto districts.

Beyond its local impact, ExpandPF also aims to influence policies and practices in the region's countries, as well as engage the private sector, civil society, and local decision-makers. 

The project is part of the Ouagadougou Partnership (launched in 2011, supporting the acceleration of family planning services in nine West African countries: Togo, Benin, Burkina Faso, Côte d'Ivoire, Guinea, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, and Senegal), in addition to Cameroon; and the FP2030 initiative, a global initiative for family planning.

The USAID pumped $49.5 million into the project. The project is steered by the Togolese Association for Family Well-being (ATBEF) and the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF).
