Description and results

Description

This project seeks to improve access to sexual and reproductive health services (including family planning), as well as strengthening the capacity of community-based health workers to deliver sexual and reproductive health services, and promoting sexual and reproductive rights. The project focuses on improving the sexual and reproductive health of more than 635,000 women (aged 15-49 years), including 320,000 adolescents (aged 15-24 years). Project activities include: (1) increasing the capacity of health centres to deliver emergency obstetric and neonatal care; (2) providing nutrition and sexual and reproductive health services (including at least five family planning methods); (3) behaviour change communication activities; (4) providing care for victims of gender-based violence; and (5) completing a mapping activity in order to develop a data management system for data on female adolescent reproductive health and sexual and gender based violence.

Expected results

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) increased accessibility, quality and design of sexual and reproductive health services; (2) improved demand for sexual and reproductive health services by women and adolescent girls; and (3) strengthened use of sexual and reproductive health findings and data by the health sector and decision-makers.

Results achieved

Results achieved as of (March 2020) include: (1) reached 155,729 adolescents (103,790 boys and 51,939 girls) by communications activities aimed at changing behaviours to have the ability and knowledge to make free and informed decisions regarding sexual and reproductive rights and health; (2) 69,661 youths aged 15 to 24 years accessed sexual and reproductive health information services; (3) 6,829 women survivors of gender-based violence were treated and taken into care by prevention and care structures; (4) 5,515 women aged 15 to 49 years became new users of family planning; and (5) equipped five structures to provide multi-faceted care to victims of gender-based violence in accordance with standard operating procedures (medical and psychosocial assistance, legal assistance, and support for social rehabilitation).
