Description and results

Description

This project aims to improve sexual, reproductive, maternal and newborn health (SRMNH) for women, adolescent girls and newborns in the five most populous districts of Inhambane Province, Mozambique. This is achieved by increasing community support and access to sexual, reproductive, maternal and newborn health care; training health workers; improving the capacity of health institutions; and promoting gender-responsive and evidence-based approaches for planning of cost-effective interventions. Project activities include: (1) mobilizing local leaders and community members in 20 communities on women’s empowerment and SRMNH; (2) creating and supporting networks of trained community-based health practitioners with links to health facilities; (3) designing and delivering an in-hospital initial and continuing education program; (4) strengthening the management of training institutions and training new health practitioners; (5) building or rehabilitating and equipping clinics for maternal and reproductive health; and (6) disseminating gender-responsive information and research on SRMNH. Community members in Inhambane Province, mainly women and adolescent girls of child-bearing age (165,000) and newborns (23,000), are expected to benefit from increased use of higher quality health services.

Expected results

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) increased utilization of sexual, reproductive, maternal and newborn health (SRMNH) services by women, adolescent girls and newborns in 20 targeted communities; (2) strengthened and gender-sensitive management, training, and delivery of quality SRMNH care by managers and practitioners in the Inhambane Directorate of Health and five targeted districts; (3) increased availability and consideration of research-based gender-responsive information to support planning of cost-effective SRMNH interventions by health system planners.

Results achieved

Results achieved as of March 2021 include: (1) seven health facilities, including four rural health centres with maternity wards and three maternal waiting homes, are now built and fully operational; (2) delivered training on sexual, reproductive, maternal and newborn health (SRMNH), including safe abortion and post-abortion care, to 1,116 health care providers and managers; and (3) delivered education sessions on SRMNH to 32,273 participants (of whom 56% are women and girls), including students and community members.
