The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Wednesday launched a $40 million health programme aimed at family planning, maternal, newborn and child health.

Sindh Minister for Health and Population Dr Azra Fazal Pechuho and USAID’s Mission Director Reed Aeschliman were present at the ‘Building Health Families Activity (BHFA)’ programme’s launch in Karachi, which will operate in Sindh and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa to enhance primary health care systems.

The programme, led by Pathfinder International — a US non-governmental organisation, will support voluntary family planning (FP) and improve maternal, newborn, and child health (MNCH) services in Pakistan.

“The United States has a long history of partnership with the government of Sindh,” Aeshliman said addressing the ceremony. He added that USAID is committed to strengthening this relationship by building upon the foundation and legacy of its partnership and shared goal to save and improve lives.
