Description and results


The project aims to improve the health and protect the rights of women, adolescent girls and children, including indigenous and afro-descendant populations, living in situations of vulnerability in Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Guatemala, Guyana, Haiti, Honduras, Nicaragua, Paraguay, Peru and Suriname. Project activities include: (1) strengthening national systems of health statistics to improve the reliability of data on maternal deaths; (2) strengthening the ability of health services to provide appropriate care for children, girls and women to prevent HIV transmission and other diseases transmitted from mother to child; (3) strengthening national capacity to develop annual action plans for immunization; and (5) strengthening national capacity in micronutrient distribution to children, women of childbearing age and pregnant women.

Expected results

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) better usage of essential health services; (2) enhanced management by national health authorities of leading diseases; and (3) improved nutritional practices in targeted populations.
