Solina is part of a network of implementing partners on the USAID-funded Frontier Health Markets (FHM) Engage project led by Chemonics international. FHM Engage is a global cooperative agreement to provide technical support to local actors to improve access to family planning (FP), and maternal, neonatal, and child health (MNCH) outcomes by strengthening the private sector markets in their twenty-four (24) priority countries (including Nigeria).
Solina supports both global core activities and Nigerian country-specific activities on the project. On the global side, we are conducting a global assessment of opportunities to leverage provider aggregation and networking models to improve access to family planning. Other activities are scheduled to commence soon.
On the Nigerian support side, we are supporting the development and initiation of its year-one work plan. The Nigerian work is commencing in FCT and Ebonyi states with the possibility of expanding to other USAID priority states.
The FHM engage team is a very diverse team with stakeholders spread around the world which provides a great learning opportunity for the team.
