Description and results

Description

This project aims to improve access to sexual and reproductive health (SRH) and nutrition services that are adapted to the needs of adolescents in Burkina Faso, and to create a supportive environment for adolescent SRH, including the recognition of their rights. To this end, the project provides training and technical assistance to public health providers in nearly 700 health centres in order to promote good practices in the delivery of SRH services that are adapted to the needs of adolescents and respectful of their rights. The project also contributes to the development and dissemination of communication strategies and tools within the Ministry of Health and other partners on family planning, nutrition, sexually transmitted infections and HIV/AIDS. In addition, the project conducts advocacy with adolescents, teachers, parents, communities and policy makers. This project is implemented by Helen Keller International, in partnership with Marie Stopes Burkina Faso and Farm Radio International.

Expected results

Expected results are: (1) improved quality of sexual and reproductive health services offered to adolescents in the health and social promotion centres of the health regions supported by the project; (2) increased use of reproductive health services, especially family planning, nutrition and voluntary HIV testing by adolescents; and (3) creation of an environment conducive to sexual and reproductive health of adolescents, including recognition of their rights.

Results achieved

Results obtained as of December 2020 include: 1) the quality of sexual and reproductive health services offered to adolescents has improved through the training of health care providers in three districts which made it possible to train 65 providers (including 30 women) . Of these 65 trained agents, 40 providers (including 21 women) scored at least 85% on the test following the training. Formative supervision of health workers was carried out, with 219 supervisions having taken place during 2020; 2) teacher training continued, with 30 project contact individuals trained (19 of whom are women from schools); 3) 390 school clubs comprising 7,800 members have been set up in 66 intervention establishments. Each club benefited from two events related to the themes of reproductive sexual health and 109 recorded programs on early pregnancy and gender equality were broadcasted; 4) seven listening centers for young people and two school infirmaries received equipment for the continuity of clinical and recreational activities in these centers during the year of 2020. 833 health centers benefited from communication kits that promote adolescent and youth reproductive sexual health; 5) 27,784 calls were received at the call center and 90% of the questions asked by adolescents were related to sexual and reproductive health in general, and family planning in particular; 6) 36 voluntary HIV testing centers continued with routine activities integrating sexual reproductive health services.
