Healthy Timing and Spacing of Pregnancy
MFK has reached over 70,000 female youth and adult women of reproductive age (WRA) in Siaya and Kisumu counties with contraceptive services since the inception of the Family Planning (FP) and Advocacy Project in 2013. . Through the 5-year Project, the organization has also so far trained 130 health providers and 214 volunteers; upgraded 38 health facilities to be able to provide modern contraceptive services and other sexual reproductive health (SRH) services. MFK recognizes the significance of having a strong FP health management information system (HMIS) for evidence based decision making hence the organization pays particular attention to the data collection and management processes in the 38 supported health facilities as part of the capacity building. In addition, through a USAID-Measure Evaluation grant, the organization is undertaking a research to investigate the integration of FP data into the National DHIS2.
Cervical Cancer Screening and Treatment
MFK is committed to contributing to the reduction of cases of undetected cervical cancer by supporting screening services to women between the ages of 15 and 49 at the 38 health facilities during insertion of IUCD and during community outreaches by ensuring a constant supply of commodities and availability of health providers skilled in cervical cancer screening. As a result, the organization has screened over 1,000 women with over 75% linkage to treatment of women found with positive lesions. Over 100 young girls have also been provided with HPV vaccines through the school health program.
