ABOUT THE IDEA PROJECT

The IDEA Project—Informing Decisionmakers to Act—has been implemented by the Population Reference Bureau (PRB) from 2010 to 2015 with funding from the U.S. Agency for International Development. Over five years, the project repositioned population and family planning as development priorities among decisionmakers, and increased political commitment for policies and programs designed to make women and girls, men and boys, healthier and more productive.

By equipping policy audiences with accurate, understandable information about population, family planning, and reproductive health, PRB’s IDEA team enhanced policy and advocacy efforts carried out by civil society, the public sector, the development community, and donors. IDEA developed materials on priority issues in cutting-edge formats; trained and supported media to influence policy change; built the communications capacity of institutions, researchers, and advocates; and nurtured communities of policy champions.

The project increased commitment from communities and nations to meet the reproductive health needs of their people. The stories included here describe some of our successes. We hope that our activities, results, and lessons for the future will inspire others in the policy and advocacy realm to work along with us toward a vision of universal access to family planning around the world.
