What We Do

We believe every person deserves access to quality reproductive health and family planning services. With support from USAID, E2A joins partners across the globe to reach millions of adolescents, women, men, and families with health care that changes and saves lives—and has the power to transform communities and nations.

 

How We Work

For eight years, and across 17 countries, we have advanced evidence-based practices that have contributed to reductions in unintended pregnancies and gender disparities and improvements in reproductive health. Evidence, learnings, and resources generated by E2A lay the foundation for the next generation of high-impact family planning and reproductive health programs.

E2A’s 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 we deliver innovations that respond to the unique needs of target communities and can be adapted and scaled up.
