Abt Associates: Bold thinkers driving real-world impact
In Jordan, pregnancy-related hypertensive disease is a serious health threat for women of reproductive age. Meanwhile, demand for modern contraception and knowledge of the health benefits of family planning has lagged, and Jordan’s public hospitals still lack the facilities and trained staff needed to provide the highest standard of obstetric and neonatal care.
Two projects led by Abt Associates and funded by USAID are working with the government and private sector to change this.
