Tékponon Jikuagou was developed as a response to persistent low rates of family planning uptake in Benin. Tékponon Jikuagou, which means “doing everything possible to prevent infant mortality” in the local language of Adja, aimed to reduce unmet need for family planning through social network interventions, thereby improving healthy timing and spacing of births .The six-year project (2010-2017) was developed by the Institute for Reproductive Health at Georgetown University and managed in collaboration with Plan International and CARE.
