RESPOND's Mayer Hashi Project in Bangladesh seeks to address unmet need for family planning (FP) by expanding contraceptive choices and program services, with a focus on long-acting and permanent methods of contraception (LA/PMs). These include hormonal implants, the intrauterine device (IUD), and male and female sterilization. Mayer Hashi also aims to reduce maternal mortality—currently 350 deaths per 100,000 deliveries—through the prevention of postpartum hemorrhage (PPH).

RESPONDing to Bangladesh's Needs
Mayer Hashi is helping to improve FP and reproductive health in Bangladesh by adopting a holistic programmatic approach that results in:

  • Skilled, motivated, well-supported service providers
  • Engaged communities and accurate information about LA/PMs, not only to increase knowledge, but also to improve the image of LA/PM services and users
  • An improved policy and program environment for FP service

We do this by building local capacity and strengthening the health system, in collaboration with a broad array of local partners and stakeholders, through the transfer of skills and learning.
