Abt Associates


Abt Associates provides data-driven capacity building, technical assistance, and policy support to help our clients—governments around the world—improve the quality of families’ lives. We collaborate with the private sector and civil society to help prevent unintended pregnancies, unsafe abortions, and maternal deaths by increasing demand for and access to affordable, quality family planning (FP) services. Abt implements a wide range of FP projects – from SHOPS Plus which through a public/private engagement approach has delivered to couples over 2.5 million couple-years protection – to the DRC, where support to the public sector has resulted in 1.2 million new FP users in a year and a half.

Private Sector Health Brochure

The private sector is a key partner in achieving priority health goals. Abt leverages our strong relationships with local governments and deep understanding of the private sector to design context-specific solutions that strengthen and expand resources to address pressing health needs. We ensure interventions are sustainable and maximize each sector’s comparative advantages because we understand that strategic engagement of the private sector increases access to health products and services, strengthens the health systems and improves overall health outcomes.
