Community Health, Family Planning, and Water Programs in Biodiversity Rich Areas of Madagascar
From April 2011 to July 2012, Conservation International (CI) Madagascar implemented a Population, Health and Environment (PHE) project called Tokantrano Salama in the Ambositra-Vondrozo Forest Corridor (COFAV) in southeastern Madagascar. With funding from the U.S. Agency for International Development, CI Madagascar and partners Voahary Salama and Ny Tanintsika increased access to family planning and reproductive health (FP/RH) services, improved access to clean water sources and Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) services, and promoted the benefits of integrated PHE approaches both within Madagascar and to the global PHE community. Using this integrated approach, CI and partners helped communities to improve their health at the same time they improved their water sources and the environment in this fragile and unique ecosystem.
