FCDO’s Women’s Integrated Sexual Health (WISH) programme (Lot 2) will provide approximately £132m to deliver integrated sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) services in 13 countries in Africa and 3 in Asia. The WISH programme builds on previous successful initiatives supported by DFID and others to expand sexual and reproductive health care services and support countries which have made FP2020 commitments to achieve them. The programme is expected to ensure that women can safely plan their pregnancies and improve their sexual and reproductive health, particularly the young and marginalised.
The 5-year UK aid funded ‘Reducing high fertility rates and Improving Sexual reproductive health outcomes in Uganda’ programme (RISE) began in November 2018 with the goal of increasing the uptake of modern contraceptive use in seven major regions of Uganda. The RISE consortium is led by MSI Uganda.
