Lusaka University Teaching Hospital
ICA Foundation and Lusaka University Teaching Hospital (UTH) partnered to make LNG IUS more available to women visiting the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology with a total donation of 500 LNG ISU since September 2011. Alongside community sensitization and demand-creation activities, UTH has integrated LNG IUS into postpartum family planning services within the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
The University Teaching Hospital is the largest hospital in Zambia and is the principal medical training institution for medical students, interns, and postgraduate doctors, and also trains nurses and clinical officers.
Women Care Global
WomanCare Global provides access to high-quality, innovative and affordable reproductive healthcare technologies for contraception, fertility and pregnancy management. WomanCare Global partners with the clinics in Zambia and will distribute the LNG IUS via public and private sector clinics. The objective of this partnership with ICA is to increase access to LNG IUS, where unmet need for family planning remains high at nearly 27%.
