Global Opportunities, 2016

The USAID-funded Evidence to Action Project (E2A) is pleased to announce the publication of a recent report: Reaching First-Time Parents and Young Married Women for the Healthy Timing and Spacing of Pregnancies in Burkina Faso. This report complements our growing portfolio of publications focused on youth programs, and specifically first-time parents. The report follows a literature review published by E2A in 2014 that offers recommendations which can be applied to reproductive health programs focused on first-time parents. Taking evidence to action—many of the recommendations included in the literature review were applied to the project described in the report.
