Description and results

Description

This project aims to improve sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) for vulnerable adolescent girls and boys through an adolescent-friendly approach focused on preventing and reducing unwanted pregnancies, HIV/AIDS and sexual and gender-based violence. Project activities include: (1) strengthening SRHR healthcare services through capacity development of health networks; (2) mobilizing adolescent groups and organizations to improve their awareness and capacity to engage on SRHR issues; and (3) improving the policy and operational environment at subnational levels for preventing unwanted pregnancies, HIV/AIDS and sexual and gender-based violence. The initiative is implemented by UNICEF, as part of their Bolivia country program, in collaboration with Save the Children.

Expected results

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) improved quality of adolescent sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) services for the prevention of unwanted pregnancies, sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) and HIV/AIDS, ensuring services are gender and culturally sensitive and adolescent-friendly; (2) enhanced decision-making power and gender equality among vulnerable youth and adolescent girls and boys to prevent unwanted pregnancies, SGBV and HIV/AIDS; and (3) strengthened enabling environment for vulnerable youth and adolescent girls and boys to meaningfully exercise their rights to gender equality and SRHR.

Results achieved

Results achieved as of March 2021 include: (1) trained 796 healthcare providers and staff from 225 public pharmacies (of which 443 women) and provided 151 health care facilities with essential equipment to increase access to quality gender-sensitive, adolescent-friendly sexual and reproductive health services; (2) increased knowledge and decision-making power for 212 adolescents (of which 119 women), due to training focused on personal empowerment, leadership, gender equality, sexual and gender-based violence and sexual and reproductive health and rights; (3) increased participation and inclusion of adolescents and youth in decision-making spaces through the enactment of three municipal youth laws and the creation and strengthening of five municipal children and youth councils/committees; (4) delivered 5,000 rapid tests and protective equipment to help ensure the continuity of essential maternal and newborn services in 69 health facilities and the timely diagnosis and treatment of 850 pregnant women, including adolescents, infected with COVID-19; (5) set-up a helpline to offer psycho-emotional support to families, and to prevent and respond to cases of violence; this helpline received more than 32,000 calls; and (6) provided personal protective equipment to municipal services to ensure they continue to attend cases of violence against women and girls.
