Through its consortium partner CEDPA, CATALYST is providing technical assistance to the 10-year $325 million USAID-funded Innovations in Family Planning Services Project (IFPS), a bilateral project of USAID and the Government of India. The project has just received a two-year, no-cost extension for the period between October 1, 2002 and September 30, 2004. It is also expanding its coverage from the original 33 districts (population 80 million) within the state of Uttar Pradesh, to include the rest of the state plus an additional two new states--Jharkhand and Uttaranchal. This brings the total coverage to 194 million people.

As lead CA, CATALYST furnishes administrative and logistical support through CEDPA. In addition, technical assistance is being provided in the areas of individual and organizational capacity building for the implementing agency in UP, SIFPSA and its private-sector partners and for other private-sector interventions.  This is creating an enabling environment at family, community, service delivery, program and policy levels to meet the overall goals of the IFPS Project: to increase access to, improve quality of and increase demand for FP/RH. Technical assistance is provided for the adoption of FP/RH behaviors through a number of innovative interventions:

CATALYST will build on the work of CEDPA under the ENABLE project and its predecesor, the ACCESS project--both USAID-supported global initiatives.
