In 2017 and 2018 CHASE Africa provided a total of 92,700 family planning services to women in marginalised communities in Kenya and Uganda. against a target to Dec 2018 of 50,000 services. This has empowered women to be able to decide the timing, spacing and number of children that they want to have. We have supported our implementing partner organisations to provide these services to high standards in conjunction with their local MoH offices.. One of the important challenges has been sourcing free family planning supplies through local MoH partnerships and costs have consequently risen as supplies have not all been provided for free.
CHASE Africa will provide access to voluntary free family planning services to marginalized poor communities in Kenya and Uganda and as a result 25,000 additional women will have access to contraception each year. This will total over 100,000 additional women between January 2017 and December 2020.
This non-financial commitment to FP2020 is valued at US$992,250, in support of Every Woman Every Child.
