Côte d’Ivoire Family Planning Demand Analysis. Analyse de planification familiale pour la Côte d’Ivoire.
[Washington, D.C., PSI], Transform PHARE, 2017 Jul. 102 p.National demand analysis was used for the first time in Niger in 2014-2015 with the support of the William & Flora Hewlett Foundation, to address the country’s increasing fertility rate.

Increasing Support For Reproductive Health Activities Among Religious Leaders In Niger. Volume 1. Inspiration. Accroître le Soutien aux Activités de Santé Reproductive parmi les Leaders Religieux au Niger. Volume 1. Inspiration.
[Washington, D.C., PSI], Transform PHARE, 2017. 39 p.This first volume, of a series of three reports, focuses on the inspiration phase highlights the results of the HCD research conducted by YLabs and PSI to uncover youths' and religious leaders' perspectives on and knowledge of reproductive health products and services, particularly birth spacing practices, in three districts and nine villages. The research also sought to better understand the health, social, and economic contexts that influence their attitudes and decision making. Through interviews, observation, participatory research activities, and co-design workshops, PSI explored how social norms, peers, family, aspirations, religion, and financial constraints affect their decisions. The team also conducted a range of expert interviews in Niamey and Zinder with religious associations, governmental actors, USAID (which funded the programme), and other non-governmental organisations. The findings showed, for example, that there were several religious leaders within each village who were supportive of birth spacing, but perceived a significant amount of risk assuming a publicly supportive stance on their own. Insights from the design research also revealed that men routinely exercise dominion over every household decision, including household expenses, the number and timing of children, and what, if any, contraceptive method wives will use. Despite this immense control over household decision-making, it found that men had insufficient knowledge of the financial implications of raising children. In addition, both religious leaders and youth shared a desire to improve their knowledge (and relatedly, an ability to dispel myths) about reproductive health in a public forum so that the larger community could additionally benefit from this candid discourse.
Increasing Support For Reproductive Health Activities Among Religious Leaders In Niger. Volume 2. Ideation. Accroître le Soutien aux Activités de Santé Reproductive parmi les Leaders Religieux au Niger. Volume 2. Ideation.
[Washington, D.C., PSI], Transform PHARE, 2017. 51 p.This second volume, of a series of three reports, discusses the ideation phase, which is based on insights gathered during the inspiration phase. As explained in this second report, the team sought to develop solutions that tested the following central hypotheses: 1) What resources, tools, religious arguments, or other incentives would motivate and inspire religious leaders to assume a more publicly supportive stance on birth spacing? 2) Would improving the dynamics between religious leaders and youth foster more empathy, understanding, and support for positive reproductive health activities? 3) Would a better understanding of the financial implications of having and raising children framed in the context of responsible parenthood encourage men to consider practicing birth spacing? 4) How might we go about designing high-impact solutions for low-literacy populations in low-tech contexts? The report explains how, based on these hypothesis, the team designed ten rapid, low-fidelity prototypes that were subsequently field-tested (using a variety of testing methods, such as mystery shopping, pictorial elicitation, role playing, and card sorting), with a combination of 72 religious leaders, youth, and healthcare workers across target districts. The team then evaluated which prototypes demonstrated the most promising potential with respect to a number of indicators, including sustainability, financial viability, and low risk to communities. The outcome of this evaluation yielded three refined concepts that were selected for live prototyping. The report highlights some of the lessons and implications that emerged out of this live prototyping that would be useful for implementing these activities.

[Analysis of the family planning market and communication services for social and behavioral change according to the Total Market Approach. Final report] Analyse du Marché de Planification Familiale et des Services de Communication pour le Changement Social et Comportemental selon l’Approche du Marché Total. Rapport Final.
[Washington, D.C., PSI], Transform PHARE, 2017 Nov. 38 p.This study is on the analysis of the FP market in Côte d'Ivoire with a focus on Communication for Social and Behavioral Change (SBCC). The objective was to list all the actors involved in the supply of FP products and services, as well as the SBCC and FP value chain, and to identify the failures of the FP market in Côte d'Ivoire. The study targeted all market players (manufacturers, importers and distributors). It took place in two stages: the first step (June 27 to July 8, 2016) was to review the literature of studies conducted in Côte d'Ivoire and elsewhere on the family planning market, the second stage (July 18 to 31, 2016), collected information from stakeholders (manufacturers, importers, distributors and NGOs) using an interview guide. The results are summarized as follows: Contraceptive needs and use: The modern contraceptive prevalence rate increased from 6% in 1994 to 14% in 2012 according to the 2012 ESDI. Out of a population of 2,046,297 women in need of family planning, only 609,290 women are users of FP products. This means that 1,437,007 or 70.2% of women have an unmet need for family planning. Recommendations: Intensify TV and radio communication activities to expose people to messages in the long term; Exempt the communication messages of the PF from all taxes to reduce the cost of production that will multiply the publication of messages to reach the maximum number of people; Improve the procurement system for products in the public sector to facilitate and facilitate fluidity of supply of products from the central level to the peripheral level; Exempt or reduce taxes on PF products especially at the public sector level and increase state subsidies for the purchase of products.
