Field Initiatives


Leveraging our capacity building and PHE knowledge management initiatives, BALANCED facilitates the scale-up, replication and start-up of PHE field-based activities in countries with existing PHE networks through additional financing from a mix of Mission and Bureau buy-ins and leveraged funds from non-US government donors. The PHE interventions focus mainly on the delivery of family planning and health services to communities in priority biodiversity conservation areas with high rates of population growth.

To this end, we continue to build on the strong working relationships and partnerships in existing PHE networks, such as in the Philippines, and forge new communities of practice in order to promote PHE as an effective development approach. Field activities provide opportunities to refine, learn from, and document integrated PHE interventions. BALANCED Project field activities focus primarlily on Tanzania and Philippines, as well as Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Uganda and Zambia.
