Family Planning Australia

Family Planning Australia has worked with the Tuvalu Family Health Association since 2012. We have supported Tuvalu through education programs to promote sustainable sexual and reproductive health outcomes, and provided capacity building training on disability inclusion in reproductive and sexual health. In 2019, we will begin implementing a cervical cancer screening and treatment programme across Tuvalu.

"Before the training we had lots of unsatisfactory results; after the training we have had good outcomes, with less unsatisfactory results, so really improving our skills as clinicians."
