In collaboration with researchers at the Institut Supérieur des Sciences de la Population (ISSP) in Burkina Faso, PACE developed a policy landscape analysis of the national policy and program environments for sustaining youth contraceptive use in the nine Ouagadougou Partnership countries, based on the policy brief’s recommendations. This analysis allows users to quickly assess the extent to which a country’s policy environment enables and supports sustained youth contraceptive use. Civil society organizations can directly use this information in their dialogue with policymakers around how to enhance policies that support sustained contraceptive use by young people who wish to prevent, avoid, or delay pregnancy.
PACE supported three youth-led organizations—SERAC in Bangladesh, Visible Impact in Nepal, and Youth Alliance for Reproductive Health (YARH) in the Democratic Republic of the Congo—as they undertook policy advocacy initiatives related to enhancing youth contraceptive continuation in their respective countries.
