FHI 360’s PROGRESS project (2008–2013) sought to improve access to family planning methods and services among underserved populations in developing countries through research, research utilization and capacity building. PROGRESS offered global technical leadership and undertook focused country-level activities in seven technical areas. The project worked through FHI 360’s country offices in collaboration with ministries of health, implementing partners and other stakeholders. The five-year project was funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). Dr. Maggwa Baker, PROGRESS director, provided an overview of the project in this video. The PROGRESS End-of-Project Report, available here [PDF, 2.1 MB], summarizes PROGRESS successes and contributions to meeting the family planning needs of underserved populations.
