HRH2030 is a program by USAID that aims to train the health workforce in low-income countries needed to prevent maternal and child deaths, expand access to family planning, control HIV/AIDS, and protect communities from infectious diseases. 

 

Amref Health Africa is a consortium partner of HRH2030. Alongside Chemonics International, we work through HRH2030 to expand access to and raise awareness of family planning services in Cameroon. As part of the program, we have helped identify and train almost 70 community leaders in Cameroon to act as a direct link between formal health systems and communities. These community leaders are crucial in changing attitudes about family planning and promoting the use of these services at health facilities. 

 

Elisabeth is one of these community leaders and is featured in a new photo story called Double Duty, published by HRH2030. The photo story, or photo essay, follows Elisabeth as she goes on a regular visit to a health facility, where she promotes family planning methods to mothers who have come for family immunization services. Read the rest of the photo story and see how leaders like Elisabeth have made it easier for women in their communities to access family planning in Africa.
