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 April 2019 include: (1) Project Implementation Plan and Baseline study were developed and completed with the endorsement of all key actors, including the Ministry of Health, Ministry of Education and targeted municipal governments in La Paz, Beni, and Cochabamba; (2) 123 technicians from 31 health networks in Beni, Cochabamba and La Paz departments were trained in the standard of differentiated care for adolescents, acquiring new knowledge and ways of working with adolescents; (3) strategic guidelines at the national level were developed in accordance with Ministry of Health policies on prevention of pregnancy, HIV and violence; (4) 20 facilitators were trained for the implementation of the Critical Care Route for Victims of Violence and nine departmental teams were strengthened for the care and prevention of violence, as well as the reference and counter-referral of cases, improving the ability of public health care providers to deliver quality services and counseling for sexual and gender based violence; (5) the first National Encounter of Defenders of Children and Adolescents was held in La Paz, bringing together defenders from five departments across the country to discuss legal frameworks and take part in training workshops; and (6) the municipality of Shinahota held the Fair of Masculinities for Father’s Day in the main square, with the presence of 200 community members. The fair included 4 stands by students, one stand managed by the municipality staff on “men against violence”, and theatre performances, promoting new perspectives founded in gender equality principles.
