Planning for the Scale-Up of Postabortion Family Planning for Adolescents and Youth in Senegal
Between September 2018 and July 2019, Pathfinder International’s Evidence to Action (E2A) Project, with support from USAID and in close collaboration with IntraHealth International’s Neema Project, supported Senegal’s Ministry of Health and Social Action (MSAS) to implement and plan for the scale-up of the “Postabortion Family Planning for Adolescents and Youth (PAFP-AY)” intervention. Utilizing the four steps of E2A’s project cycle (listed below), this technical brief describes the different stages in planning for scale-up as well as the key results we achieved.
STEP 1: IDENTIFY HEALTH NEEDS AND EVIDENCE GAPS
STEP 2: DESIGN PAFP-AY WITH SCALE-UP IN MIND
STEP 3: ADAPT IMPLEMENTATION AND DOCUMENT LEARNING
STEP 4: SUPPORT GEOGRAPHICAL SCALE-UP AND INSTITUTIONALIZE OF THE PAFP-AY INTERVENTION
