What Can PHE Projects Learn From Family Planning?
February 19, 2019
On February 6th, JSI population, health, and environment (PHE) expert Dr. Yvette Ribaira shared insights from her experience in Madagascar during a webinar examining the link between PHE programs and high-impact practices (HIPs) drawn from family planning activities.
Dr. Ribaira, a medical doctor, has spent her career in public health strengthening the Madagascar’s health system, with a specific focus on community health in the last decade. She currently leads JSI’s USAID Community Capacity for Health Program in Madagascar, locally known as Mahefa Miaraka, which implements the Population Health and Environment (PHE) Activity, funded by JSI's Advancing Partners and Communities project.
The webinar was hosted by the PACE (Policy, Advocacy, and Communication Enhanced for Population and Reproductive Health) project and included presenters from the Population Reference Bureau and USAID.
