  • India

    The country program of the Urban Reproductive Health Initiative in India, called the Urban Health Initiative (UHI), is being implemented in six cities in the state of Uttar Pradesh: Agra, Aligarh, Allahabad, Gorakhpur, Moradabad and Varanasi. In an effort to significantly increase the contraceptive prevalence rate (CPR) in these selected cities by 2014, UHI will focus on promoting contraceptive methods for birth spacing among the lowest and second-lowest wealth quintiles.

  • Nigeria

    The Nigerian Urban Reproductive Health Initiative (NURHI) is being implemented in Abuja, Benin City, Ibadan, Ilorin, Kaduna and Zaria. NURHI will focus its efforts on promoting contraceptive methods for both spacing and limiting births, with a special focus on increasing access to family planning among the lowest and second-lowest wealth quintiles.

  • Senegal

    L’Initiative Sénégalaise de Santé Urbaine (ISSU), the country-level program of the Urban Reproductive Health Initiative in Senegal, will be implemented in the urban areas of Dakar, Guediawaye, Kaolack, Mbao, Mbour and Pikine. ISSU will focus its efforts on promoting spacing and limiting methods, especially increasing access to family planning among the three lowest wealth quintiles. Increasing use of modern contraception is a key strategy for achieving maternal and child health Millennium Development Goals (MDG) and a high priority in the government of Senegal’s MDG Road Map.
