    The Safidy programme offers women and couples in Velondriake, southwest Madagascar, access to reproductive health services so that they are able to freely choose the number and spacing of their births. Safidy, which means “choice” or “freedom to choose” in Malagasy Vezo, takes a rights-based approach to family planning. In this video, Caroline and Fanja explain about a Safidy reproductive rights training session that they are carrying out with all of the programme's community-based distributors. Community-based distributors are local women who are trained and supported by Blue Ventures to provide basic information and services relating to family planning, maternal and child health, and hygiene and sanitation within their villages. They offer various products including different contraceptives for those who wish to use them. The Safidy programme is part of Blue Ventures’ integrated population, health and environment approach that is empowering coastal communities in Velondriake, southwest Madagascar, to live healthily and sustainably with their marine environment.
