From 2013 to 2016, the University of North Carolina Project-Malawi engaged with partners, including HP+'s predecessor the Health Policy Project, to sensitize religious leaders and their congregations on the benefits of family planning in the catchment areas of two intervention facilities to address barriers to family planning related to religious beliefs. Published by the International Journal of Gynecology & Obstetrics, the study found that uptake of family planning methods, particularly long-acting reversible contraceptives, increased following implementation of family planning interventions in Malawi.
