On behalf of USAID’s Evidence to Action (E2A) Project and our consortium of partners—Pathfinder International, ExpandNet, IntraHealth International, PATH, Management Sciences for Health, and the African Population and Health Research Center—I’m excited to share with you E2A’s final report.

For nearly 10 years, across 17 countries, E2A advanced high-quality services that have improved reproductive health and contributed to reductions in unintended pregnancies and gender disparities. As a result, today, more women and girls can make—and act on—informed decisions that ensure the healthiest outcomes for themselves and their families.

Pioneering cutting-edge programs for youth.

On page 8, see how E2A programs improved health and gender outcomes for first-time parents, strengthened policies, accelerated a global shift to youth-responsive systems, and cultivated youth leadership.

Advancing systematic scale-up.

On page 22, see the impact of E2A’s locally owned scale-up activities on maternal and newborn health, unmet need for family planning, young people’s access to postabortion family planning, and behavior change.

Expanding method choice.

On page 38, see how E2A partnered with governments to expand access to long-acting reversible contraceptives, brought new methods to people’s doorsteps, improved service quality, and advanced global learning.

Broadening the impact of family planning.

On page 49, learn about E2A’s work to advance couple-focused interventions and build resilience for people and the planet.

The evidence, results, and resources you’ll see in this report show just how much we can achieve together.

E2A thanks our country partners around the world who made this project possible—from government ministries and agencies, regional and global networks, professional associations, private partners, funders, health providers, and communities we served.

And I would like to share a special message with the youth leaders who made E2A their own: Thank you. As long as your passion, creativity, talent, skill, and advocacy continue to shape the next generation of family planning programs, I am hopeful for the future.

My very best,

Rita Badiani
Project Director, E2A
Pathfinder International
