USAID Launches a $60 Million Child-Spacing and Reproductive-Health Program in Pakistan
Date:2/14/2008

WASHINGTON, Feb. 14 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The American people, through the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), have launched a five-year, $60 million program in Pakistan on child spacing and reproductive health called Family Advancement for Life and Health (FALAH).

"FALAH is a visionary program that applies lessons learned during the past 40 years about how to deliver family planning services effectively and explores new solutions to the many challenges facing Pakistan's family planning programs," said Anne Aarnes, the Mission Director of USAlD in Pakistan. "What we learn from the FALAH program will help parents to space the births of their children and will significantly benefit Pakistani families."

USAID's FALAH program focuses on revitalizing the family planning efforts in Pakistan. The program will increase the accessibility of contraceptives and will encourage appropriate use of the contraceptives along with birth spacing practices, which will help reduce high rates of maternal and infant mortality in Pakistan.

FALAH is being implemented by a number of Pakistani and international organizations, with Population Council, a US-based research organization, leading the consortium. It is being implemented in 20 districts in Pakistan.

Support for this project is part of the $1.5 billion in aid that the U.S. Government is providing to Pakistan over five years to improve economic growth, education, health, and governance and to assist with earthquake reconstruction.

The American people, through the U.S. Agency for International Development, have provided economic and humanitarian assistance worldwide for nearly 50 years.
