Education

Every young person has to make  life-changing decisions about their sexual and reproductive health. However many of them cannot access clear, evidence-based information. IPPF's comprehensive sexuality education programmes enable young people to make informed decisions about their sexuality and health, while building life skills and promoting gender equality.

Contraception use is on the rise, partly thanks to the outreach work The Association Togolaise pour le Bien-Être Familial (ATBEF), in rural communities. Using a network of community-based volunteers and village leaders, ATBEF is reaching as many people as possible.
The unmet need for contraception in Togo currently stands at 34% of the population. Association Togolaise pour le Bien-Être Familial (ATBEF) are turning clients like Dahide and village chief Sossou Sagna into family planning advocates within their communities.
Abla Abassa is a community health worker for Association Togolaise pour le Bien-Être Familial (ATBEF), Togo. She is one of 279 community workers in her region and her work takes her to the remotes areas where the unmet need for contraception is the greatest.
