Fanja is responsible for raising awareness about sexual and reproductive health in Velondriake as well as providing family planning services to women and couples through our outreach clinics as part of the Safidy community health programme. She also supports our network of 33 community-based distributors to provide health education and products in their own villages.
"The UNFPA's support for our programme is hugely symbolic. A human rights and health agency is supporting a marine conservation organisation for the first time because they too recognise the links between population dynamics, sexual and reproductive health, food security, and natural resource sustainability."
Before starting with Blue Ventures in 2009, Fanja studied Geography at the University of Toliara and then worked with Marie Stopes International for two years.
