Association Malienne pour la Protection et la Promotion de la Famille

The Association Malienne pour la Protection et la Promotion de la Famille (AMPPF) was established in 1972 to tackle the family planning challenges facing the Malian people. It rapidly expanded its activity and remit to embrace sexual and reproductive health (SRH) counselling; neonatal, gynaecological, post-natal and post-abortion care; and prevention and management of HIV and AIDS, particularly voluntary counselling and testing (VCT). These figures were achieved through the strategic and focused management of a strong team which has the capacity to reach out to diverse communities across the country. AMPPF has hundreds of volunteers, a strong youth action movement and hundreds of peer educators and community-based distributors.   AMPPF is actively engaged with the planning, health, youth and family departments of the Malian government. It has strong ties with non-governmental organizations (NGOs) including Population Service International (PSI), the Conseil de Concertation et d'Appui aux ONGs, the Federation Nationale des Associations de Santé Communautaire au Mali (FENASCOM), the Association de Recherche, de Communication et d'Accompagnement à Domicile des Personnes vivant avec le VIH/SIDA (ARCAD), and SIDA.

Association Nigérienne pour le Bien-Etre Familial

Since 1996, the Association Nigérienne pour le Bien-Etre Familial's (ANBEF) have been providing a comprehensive range of sexual and reproductive health (SRH) needs and issues including the prevention and management of HIV and AIDS, antenatal and post-natal care, the provision of post-abortion care in clinics and health huts in rural areas, treatment of male and female infertility, and pre-marital counselling. Importantly, the Member Association also trains young people in income-generating activities. ANBEF reaches out to rural and hard-to-reach communities, including street children, sex workers, vulnerable young people and rural populations.  Services are delivered by a team of permanent staff, hundreds of volunteers, peer educators and community-based distributors (CBDs). Given that a very high proportion of 15-19 year olds give birth, and risks of maternal death and rates of child mortality are among the highest in the world, ANBEF fulfils a critical need in Niger that is not met by the private sector or government providers. ANBEF’s expertise has been called upon by the Niger government’s Technical Committee for the development of the national IPCD+10 (International Conference on Population and Development) strategy. The Member Association works with non-governmental organizations including CARE International and FCI Partnerships, and it receives funding from UNFPA and Multisector Programmes (IDA/World Bank). ANBEF works closely with other specialist population, planning, youth, HIV and AIDS and sexually transmitted infection (STI) groups in Niger.

Association Tchadienne pour le Bien-Etre Familial

When the Association Tchadienne pour le Bien-Être Familial (ASTBEF) was formed in 1991, no one was under any illusions that it was faced with an almost impossible task as the international indices for sexual and reproductive health (SRH) demonstrate. Some suggested that it would be overwhelmed and would simply not survive. Over 20 years down the line, the organisation is thriving, thanks in large part to an immensely committed team of staff, over 1,000 volunteers, peer educators, and a strong youth action movement. The organisation runs static clinics and a number of mobile operations which offer voluntary counselling and testing (VCT) for HIV, post-abortion care, antenatal and post-natal care, treatment of opportunistic infections, treatment of male and female infertility, pre-marital counselling, and advocacy against harmful cultural practices such as female genital mutilation and gender based violence. ASTBEF has made a considerable impact on the country’s SRH activity by integrating family planning with maternal and infant health, HIV and AIDS services, and youth-friendly education programmes and service provision. ASTBEF works in partnership with the government’s Global Fund National Coordination Council, and the High Commission for Population and Human Resources National Reproductive Health Programme Supporting Committee. Non-governmental organisation (NGO) links include the Comité d’information et de liaison and the Organisation des Acteurs non Etatiques (OANET). Private sector partners include PPFAI, NACA, HAPAC, SFH, The Central Bank of Nigeria, CAP Plc, and Nigeria Breweries, and donors who support ASTBEF’s work include UNFPA, UNICEF,  PNUD, Médecins du Monde, the US Embassy, PSR, GTZ, the Ministry of Social Action and Family Affairs.

Botswana Family Welfare Association

In Botswana, HIV prevalence rates are among the highest in the world: over 33% of the total population is living with HIV and AIDS. There’s a severe shortage of skilled health personnel, and very limited resources in the national health system. Formed in 1988, the Botswana Family Welfare Association (BOFWA) is fighting hard to fill the gap, but the challenge is enormous. The organization’s programmes target young people, sex workers, orphans, people with hearing and speech problems, and internally displaced persons. It provides family planning, infertility management, maternity services, voluntary counselling and testing (VCT), antenatal care and the diagnosis and treatment of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) including HIV and AIDS.   Most of BOFWA's clients are poor, marginalized, socially excluded and/or under-served. BOFWA uses a variety of different methods to reach poor and marginalized groups and communities, and works hard to develop acceptance of, and support for sexual and reproductive health services and programmes among community leaders, politicians and the police. BOFWA is proud of its achievements, but knows that there is an immense amount of work to be done. BOFWA aims to expand its services substantially in years to come. BOFWA works in close partnership with the National Council on Population and Development (NCPD, a government agency), with non-governmental organizations including Botswana Christian Aids Intervention (BOCAIT) and with private sector groups including the Botswana Confederation of Commerce, Barclays Bank of Botswana, and Barlow World. BOFWA also partners with the Botswana Network of People Living with HIV and AIDS, the Botswana National Youth Council and the Botswana Network of Ethics and Law for HIV and AIDS.

Association Togolaise pour le Bien-Etre Familial

The Association Togolaise pour le Bien-Etre Familial (ATBEF) was formed in 1975. ATBEF’s services include voluntary counselling and testing (VCT) for HIV and AIDS, antenatal and post-natal care, post-abortion care, pre-marital counselling, and infertility treatment. ATBEF carries out its work through over one hundred service points, including permanent clinics, mobile units, associated centres, and community-based distributors/community-based services (CBDs/CBSs).  The majority of all clients are poor, marginalized, socially excluded and/or under-served. Special emphasis is placed on reaching internally displaced persons, sex workers, street children and drug users. ATBEF works closely with government ministries dedicated to contraceptive commodity supply, to the reduction of maternal and neonatal mortality, and to HIV testing. In its advocacy role, the Member Association was central to the legislature’s adoption of more favourable abortion laws. ATBEF works with non-governmental organizations (NGOs) including FORUMSIDA and FONGTO, and its donors include Plan Togo, the PMLS, UNICEF and the Global Fund.

Botswana Family Welfare Association

In Botswana, HIV prevalence rates are among the highest in the world: over 33% of the total population is living with HIV and AIDS. There’s a severe shortage of skilled health personnel, and very limited resources in the national health system. Formed in 1988, the Botswana Family Welfare Association (BOFWA) is fighting hard to fill the gap, but the challenge is enormous. The organization’s programmes target young people, sex workers, orphans, people with hearing and speech problems, and internally displaced persons. It provides family planning, infertility management, maternity services, voluntary counselling and testing (VCT), antenatal care and the diagnosis and treatment of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) including HIV and AIDS.   Most of BOFWA's clients are poor, marginalized, socially excluded and/or under-served. BOFWA uses a variety of different methods to reach poor and marginalized groups and communities, and works hard to develop acceptance of, and support for sexual and reproductive health services and programmes among community leaders, politicians and the police. BOFWA is proud of its achievements, but knows that there is an immense amount of work to be done. BOFWA aims to expand its services substantially in years to come. BOFWA works in close partnership with the National Council on Population and Development (NCPD, a government agency), with non-governmental organizations including Botswana Christian Aids Intervention (BOCAIT) and with private sector groups including the Botswana Confederation of Commerce, Barclays Bank of Botswana, and Barlow World. BOFWA also partners with the Botswana Network of People Living with HIV and AIDS, the Botswana National Youth Council and the Botswana Network of Ethics and Law for HIV and AIDS.
