ICRW is working with the Institute for Reproductive Health (IRH) at Georgetown University, Population Media Center and Save the Children on the USAID-funded Fertility Awareness for Community Transformation (FACT) Project, which aims to improve fertility awareness and expand family planning access in Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia through communicating actionable, life-course-appropriate information about fertility, enabling individuals and couples to apply this knowledge to their own circumstances and needs. ICRW will work with the FACT team to integrate gender considerations into all aspects of the project, which will, in part, contribute to a greater understanding of whether and how expanding access to fertility awareness-based methods allows for greater uptake of family planning and reduces unintended pregnancies.
