Description and results

Description

This project aims to improve the sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) of adolescent girls and women and reduce maternal and newborn mortality among vulnerable populations in Bolivia. This is achieved through a rights-based approach that is adolescent-friendly and culturally sensitive. The project addresses barriers to adolescents’ demand for reproductive and sexual health services, challenges in providing such services, and community and institutional level governance and accountability. Plan Canada implements the project in 12 municipalities in the departments of La Paz, Cochabamba, Chuquisaca and Potosí.

Expected results

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) enhanced ability of adolescents, women of reproductive age and pregnant women to exercise their sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) and use gender-transformative, culturally-sensitive, and adolescent-friendly sexual and reproductive health services; (2) improved delivery of high quality gender-transformative, adolescent-friendly and culturally-sensitive sexual and reproductive health services to women and adolescent girls and boys; and (3) improved quality of participatory local health governance systems for delivery of evidence-based, culturally-sensitive, adolescent-friendly and gender-transformative SRHR services.

Results achieved

Results achieved as of March 2021 include: (1) reached 1,782 adolescents (of which 1,129 women) through peer-to-peer education and trained 1,196 traditional leaders (of which 720 women) to promote gender equality, sexual and reproductive health and rights, and protection, particularly against gender-based violence, within their communities; (2) adapted and equipped 32 health facilities to offer gender-sensitive, adolescent-friendly sexual and reproductive health services and equipped 62 health facilities with personal protective equipment and handwashing stations to prevent the spread of COVID-19; (3) facilitated 6,089 home visits conducted by health personnel and community health workers and focused on the health and protection of adolescents and pregnant women. During these home visits, 2500 personal hygiene kits to prevent COVID-19 were distributed; and (4) broadcast a 5-episode radio soap opera aimed at youth to promote COVID-19 prevention and to increase knowledge on gender-transformative sexual and reproductive health and rights. The episodes were broadcast on 16 local and 3 national radio stations, with an approximate reach of 15,243 people (6,962 adolescents and 8,281 youth.)
