The Marie Stopes Papua New Guinea (MSPNG) mission is to ensure individuals’ fundamental right to have children by choice, not chance. MSPNG works to support the Ministry of Health (MoH) of PNG to implement national SRH strategies and achieve national maternal health goals through the delivery of a broad range of high-quality family planning (FP) and SRH services and health systems strengthening approaches. MSPNG is part of the MSI global partnership, which works to improve the health and quality of life of communities in 37 countries world-wide.
Since 2017, MSPNG has received funding by the Australian Government’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT), managed by PNG-Australia Transition to Health (PATH), to implement the Partnering for Stronger Families project. The overarching goal of the project is to contribute to the reduction of maternal, infant, neonatal, and under-five mortality in PNG through the increased coverage and uptake of high-quality FP and SRH services. PSF focuses on reaching women, men, adolescents, people with disabilities, and survivors of sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) across PNG. PSF supports service delivery, training and quality assurance through various service delivery mechanisms, including National Family Planning and Training Program (NFPTP) providers, MSPNG hospital embedded providers, outreach teams, and MSPNG’s contact centre. This initiative also seeks to enhance partnerships, collaboration, and capacity at national and sub-national levels with government and other stakeholders.
Purpose and Objectives
The PSF project is due to end in December 2024, and MSPNG wishes to conduct an evaluation of the project’s effectiveness, efficiency, sustainability and impact from its inception in 2017 to date. Findings and recommendations will be used internally to inform decision-making within MSPNG regarding potential future phases of the project or similar initiative, guide broader programming across MSPNG, and provide valuable insights to project stakeholders (including PATH), and contribute to the dissemination of best practices and lessons learned.
