  • Family Planning and Reproductive Health in Kenya

    The PACE Project, in collaboration with Kenya’s National Council for Population and Development (NCPD), produced a new data sheet with findings from the 2014 Kenya Demographic and Health Survey (KDHS). The data sheet includes figures that explain national data for married women ages 15 to 49 on the demand for contraception that was satisfied, use of or intention to use contraception, and the most popular sources of contraception.

  • Media Toolkit

    PRB has worked with hundreds of journalists from developing countries to help them understand issues related to population, reproductive health, and gender status, so that they can report on them accurately and comprehensively. This media toolkit was funded by USAID under the PACE (Policy, Advocacy, and Communication Enhanced) project and based on lessons learned through our global journalism program Women’s Edition. The toolkit showcases PRB’s capacity efforts so that others who want to engage with the news media can learn from our work and expand the reach of this successful media training.

  • Tools for Subnational Policy Communication

    As more countries move toward a decentralized government structure—shifting the responsibility for political, fiscal, administrative, and other functions from the national government to subnational and local agencies—it is essential that local policymakers are well-informed about family planning (FP) and its role in development. The PACE project, with funding from USAID, has created a curated catalog of existing subnational policy communication materials and resources that demonstrate different approaches to using data in policy communication to advocate for financial and political support for FP.
