RIAMA to become self-sustaining network

22nd June 2023

RHSC partner APROPO’s private midwife network, RIAMA, is set to transition from a donor-funded to a self-sustaining network. Since its launch in 2019, its revolving fund for contraceptive procurement has grown 327 percent with profits from all contraceptive sales reinvested in the fund. The fund enables APROPO to procure a wide range of short- and long-acting reversible contraceptives in quantities that qualify for discounts of 13 to 69 percent. The network now has more than 1,400 midwives and physicians who operate in low-income peri-urban neighborhoods across Peru. RIAMA has been documented as best practice in NGO–private sector cooperation so that others might replicate it. For more information, contact RHSC Regions Manager Milka Dinev at mdinev@rhsc.org.
