ReachHealth- A Teen Pregnancy and Maternal Newborn Health Program

Center for Communication Programs (CCP) is the demand generation and communication lead on a newly-awarded USAID project. The Family Planning / Maternal & Neonatal Health Innovations and Capacity Building Platform (ReachHealth) will help Philippine communities reduce unmet needs for family planning services and decrease teen pregnancy and newborn morbidity and mortality.

ReachHealth has several objectives:

1. Improve healthy behaviors among underserved adolescents, youth, women, and men;

2. Fortify the quality of patient-centered family planning and maternal and newborn health services; and

3. Strengthen the policies and systems for sustainable health service delivery.

The focus of CCP's work related to Objective 1 will be: "introduce and scale up state-of-the-art behavioral change interventions for adolescents, youth, women, and men to improve their reproductive health seeking behavior" and the two main intermediate results under that objective are:

- Individual, household and community FP/MNH knowledge and decision making improved in underserved populations; and,

- Individual, community and local civil society empowered to practice healthy actions within their ecosystem.

ReachHealth will respond to the unmet family planning needs that have led to high levels of teenage pregnancy and newborn morbidity and mortality. The program is led by RTI International. Other partners include Duke University Global Health Innovation Center and local and national counterparts in the Philippines — primarily the Department of Health, Commission on Population, NGOs, civil society organizations and the private sector.
