Health video on Safe Abortion of Plan International Bangladesh under SHOW project

Plan International began working in Bangladesh in 1994. Across all our work, we encourage children and young people to be leaders in their communities and drive progress on the issues that matter to them. We also integrate gender equality and inclusion across all our areas of work.

Strengthening Health Outcomes for Women and Children (SHOW) is a 4.5 year (January 2016- September 2020) multi-country, gender-transformative project, with a total value of CAD 65,212,790 (Global Affairs Canada CAD 55,061,776; Plan International Canada cash/in-kind CAD $10,151,014). The ultimate objective of SHOW is to contribute to the reduction of maternal and child mortality amongst vulnerable women and children, including adolescent girls, in targeted remote, underserved regions of Bangladesh, Ghana, Haiti, Nigeria and Senegal. To achieve the project’s ambitious objective, the quality, availability, utilization and accountability of essential maternal, newborn and child health (MNCH) and sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services will be improved in the five countries. Plan International Canada will implement SHOW in partnership with Plan International offices in five countries, the respective governments, and local non-governmental organizations. SHOW is aligned with the UN’s Every Woman Every Child Global Strategy on Women’s, Children’s and Adolescent’s Health, and will help drive progress towards reaching Sustainable Development Goals 3 and 5.
