PROGRESS activities in India focused on four of the project’s seven technical areas: postpartum family planning, integration of family planning with non-health sectors, expanding the contraceptive method mix, and capacity building and crosscutting research utilization. Supported in large part by U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) Mission funds, these activities occurred primarily in the states of Uttar Pradesh and Jharkhand, but were also conducted at the national level. PROGRESS worked closely with the USAID Mission, the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, and a variety of additional public-sector and private-sector partners.
