We can do a lot together

The Reducing High Fertility Rates and Improving Sexual Reproductive Health Outcomes (RISE) programme (2017-2023) seeks to: increase access to age-appropriate sexual and reproductive health information and increase voluntary uptake of modern contraception. This helps to end preventable maternal deaths and reduce the negative health, social & economic consequences of high fertility on the individual, the family, and the community. It focuses on five outputs: (i) Increased awareness of the benefits of modern contraceptives among women, girls, men, and boys; (ii) Increased access to quality Family Planning (FP) services; (iii) Improved supply of FP commodities; (iv) Improved enabling environment to facilitate FP uptake, especially for adolescents and marginalised communities; and (v)Improved quality of data captured through the government routine reporting systems (DHIS2). By the end of 2023, the programme is expected to have contributed to a 5.7 percentage point increase in the modern contraceptive prevalence rate (mCPR), delivered 4.1 million Couple Years of Protection1 (CYPs) and averted 2.1 million unintended pregnancies. RISE is implemented by a consortium led by Marie Stopes Uganda (MSU). On the programme, RAHU contributes to Output 1 and Output 2 in the districts of Kagadi and Yumbe.
