Abstract
The ACQUIRE Project -- which stands for Access, Quality, and Use in Reproductive Health -- is a global project funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) that works worldwide to advance and support reproductive health and family planning (FP) services, with a focus on facility-based and clinical care. EngenderHealth is the managing partner of ACQUIRE overall and has been working in Bangladesh through the ACQUIRE Project since October 2003 with USAID field and core support to increase access, improve provider performance, and strengthen the environment for FP services. In Bangladesh, ACQUIRE supports the Directorate General of Family Planning (DGFP) within the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare by strengthening public-sector capacity to manage and deliver quality FP services through interventions in training, supervision, and quality improvement; by coordinating supplies and logistics systems; and by conducting community-based efforts to increase and link demand to service sites. No ACQUIRE or previous EngenderHealth interventions were conducted prior to the survey in any of the facilities described in this report. Because of a sustained and substantial field support commitment from USAID, Bangladesh is a focus country for ACQUIRE.2 Focus countries are linchpins of New York and field collaboration, in which ACQUIRE develops strategic, data-driven workplans and performance management plans that include targeted evaluations of ACQUIRE global strategies and outcomes and quality monitoring systems.
