Through the Extending Service Delivery Project, Meridian GroupInternational and Pathfinder International are able to build and expand on their earlier work as partners in the CATALYST Consortium (2000-2005). The Extending Service Delivery (ESD) Project, funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Bureau for Global Health, is designed to address unmet need for family planning (FP) and increase the use of reproductive health andfamily planning (RH/FP) services at the community level, especially among underserved populations, in order to improve health and socioeconomic development. To accomplish its mission, ESD strengthens global learning and application of best practices; increases access to community-level RH/FP services; and improves capacity for supporting and sustaining RH/FP services. ESD works closely withUSAID missions to devise tailored strategies that meet the RH/FP service delivery needs of specific countries. A five-year Leader with Associates Cooperative Agreement, ESD is managed by Pathfinder International in partnership with IntraHealth International, Management Sciences for Health, and Meridian Group International, Inc. Additional technical assistance is provided by AdventistDevelopment and Relief Agency International, the Georgetown University Institute for Reproductive Health, and Save the Children.
