BCG Initiative 2021-2022 RFP

I. Stage 3: Operationalizing
Thank you for your agency’s commitment to implementing contraceptive services and participation.Based on your progress, your agency is currently in the ‘Operationalizing’ stage of the Partner Continuum, which is a 5- stage process for transforming high-quality contraceptive services into a sustainable service at your organization.
