Policy, Advocacy, and Communication Enhanced for Population and Reproductive Health was awarded to the Population Reference Bureau (PRB) in November 2015 by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). PACE will operate through May 2022.
Under PACE, PRB works closely with global actors, national and local governments, USAID missions, and civil society to build champions, bridge sectors, and distill evidence through data-driven, innovative products. PACE strengthens capacities in advocacy, policy communication, and negotiation, and increases commitments to multisectoral approaches such as Population, Health, and Environment and the demographic dividend.
PACE ensures that family planning, reproductive health, and population issues are at the heart of policies and programs and are recognized as key to sustainable and equitable economic growth and development. Through PACE, PRB can help countries achieve end preventable child and maternal deaths and progress along the Journey to Self-Reliance.
