The focus of SEATS was on expanding and improving family planning and other reproductive health services in developing countries by strengthening both public-sector and private-sector organizations.
SEATS worked with its U.S. partners and local, in-country organizations to promote the development and expansion of high quality, client-centered, sustainable family planning and reproductive health services in developing countries and enhance access to these services. Working with communities where there was an expressed need, SEATS helped build capacity to sustain a better future. By offering innovative approaches and new perspectives, SEATS increased the efficiency, effectiveness, and quality of programs and helped reach groups of people who would otherwise remain underserved. Between 1989 and 2000, when the project ended, SEATS worked in 16 countries in Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, and the Near East.
