Capacity building: Addressing Root Causes through Partnerships

The lack of awareness, contraception knowledge and social and cultural acceptance of contraception present huge barriers for women to take up family planning, particularly for younger women. Capacity building refers to the development of knowledge, skills, commitment, structures, systems and leadership to enable and strengthen self-reliance and resilience of local health systems. Together with our partners, we are implementing scalable interventions and promoting best practices to:

  • Develop and strengthen local health systems
  • Enable local health systems on their journey towards self-reliance
  • Support the autonomy of local health systems

We are involved in numerous initiatives and collaborations worldwide for this purpose and are continuing to expand our efforts as part of our 100 million commitments. Read more below about a few of our partnerships and efforts to achieve these objectives.
