Who We Are

Evidence to Action for Strengthened Family Planning and Reproductive Health Services for Women and Girls

For eight years, and across 17 countries, the USAID-funded Evidence to Action (E2A) Project has advanced evidence-based practices that have contributed to reductions in unintended pregnancies and gender disparities and improvements in reproductive health. We believe evidence, learnings, and resources generated by our project can help lay the foundation for the next generation of high-impact family planning and reproductive health programs.

Our approach to enhancing the quality and scale of family planning and reproductive health services follows an “evidence-to-action cycle,” grounded in continuous documentation, adaptation, and learning to strengthen implementation and scale-up. This is how E2A delivers innovations that respond to the unique needs of target communities and can be adapted and scaled up.

E2A is led by Pathfinder International, in partnership with ExpandNet, IntraHealth International, and PATH.
