Francophone West AfricaBuilding on the Success of ISSU
Located in Dakar, Senegal, IntraHealth International acts as the Francophone West Africa regional hub for The Challenge Initiative. For more than a decade, IntraHealth collaborated with the government, health workers, and other local stakeholders to strengthen Senegal’s health systems and bring high-quality health care services to more communities. After years of investment, Senegal greatly reduced child mortality and malaria-related mortality, increased access to family planning, and stabilized a low incidence of HIV. In 2014 alone, IntraHealth’s Senegal Urban Reproductive Health Initiative (ISSU) delivered family planning services to over 30,000 women and provided more than 67,000 couples years of protection via community-based interventions in poor urban areas. As an implementing partner, IntraHealth International is responsible for advocating for the Initiative to city government officials, helping applicants develop reproductive health proposals and providing technical coaching and mentoring for project implementation.
