Senegal

For more than a decade, we've collaborated with the government, health workers, and other local stakeholders in Senegal to strengthen the country's health systems and bring high-quality, integrated health services to more communities than ever.

And together, we've made great progress. 

Child mortality and malaria-related deaths have dropped, access to family planning has risen, and the country has stabilized a low incidence of HIV. Today we're working hard to make sure these successes are just the beginning.


Key Results

Reduced contraceptive stockouts to less than 2%.
Conducted over 150,000 home visits and 23,000 community dialogue sessions on malaria.
Trained 1,000+ health workers to provide high-quality family planning services.
