CCRDA/PAI/QUEST Partnership Project Profile

CCRDA in partnership with its local partner Centre for Development and Capacity Building Organization (CDCB) has undertaken assessment to understand the context of quality in Reproductive health (RH) and Family Planning (FP) programs in Ethiopia, particularly in Oromia Regional State, with the support of Population Action International (PAI) QUEST Initiative.

The effort aims to strengthen the capacity of local advocates to assess and monitor the quality of family planning programs and make the case for quality and rights to a national priority.

The assessment was conducted between the year 2016-2017 and as per the assessment findings, the gaps, opportunities and challenges of providing high quality rights based reproductive health have been analyzed at National and sub national levels in the five geographic countries including Ethiopia. Unlike many of the other examinations of quality at the client and provider level, QUEST takes a unique approach by examining barriers and opportunities to improved quality and rights at the health systems, policy and governance level. While rarely integrated into considerations of quality at the client-provider level, macro-level systems’ issues can have a profound effect on a woman’s ability to exercise her rights and receive high-quality reproductive health care.

The synthesis reports drawn from the assessment findings had been compiled on the Ethiopian context and as a Global structural examination of Quality and Rights. The two copies are available here for partners who actively engaged in RH/FP programs.
