Planning for Life
Through this initiative we improved the health of young people in nine countries around the world. Active from 2007 to 2013 with support from USAID and World Learning, Planning for Life strengthened our global partner network’s ability to offer reproductive health and family planning as a critical part of their services to local youth. The initiative developed and tested a 10-lesson reproductive health life skills curriculum, which was translated into seven languages and adapted to fit the local culture of a list of diverse countries, among them India, Jordan, Saint Lucia, and Tanzania. We also provided local partners with supporting materials, such as a matrix tool based on age and marital status to help providers determine what parts of the curriculum most closely applied to their respective programs.
