Description and results

Description

This project aims to improve gender equality in nine districts in Manica and Tete provinces such that adolescent girls and young women can exercise their rights to autonomy and self-determination over their own body, as well as to sexual and reproductive health. Project activities include: (1) conducting outreach, training and small group mentoring of adolescent girls and young women to increase their confidence, knowledge, skills and civic action on sexual and reproductive health; (2) establishing community feedback and accountability mechanisms on quality of health services and progress on gender equality; (3) facilitating community dialogues for young and older men to increase their engagement and responsibility and develop action plans on sexual and reproductive health, gender violence, early marriage, and gender equality; (4) training community healthcare workers who counsel family members on the harmful effects of sexual and gender-based violence, as well as child, early and forced marriage; (5) broadcasting radio shows that address harmful and discriminatory norms about sexual and reproductive health; (6) establishing services for survivors of sexual and gender-based violence, including screening and treatment of sexually transmitted infections and psychological support; (7) training and mentoring health providers and managers to offer quality, safe and legal contraceptive and abortion services; and (8) conducting outreach to provide family planning and other sexual and reproductive health services and referrals to the most remote populations.

Expected results

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) increased empowerment of women and girls to exercise agency in household-, community-, and policy-level sexual and reproductive health and rights decision-making; (2) decreased harmful practices and socio-cultural norms and beliefs that limit women’s and girls’ decision-making and control over their sexual and reproductive health, sexuality and bodily integrity; and (3) improved provision and utilization of rights-based, gender-sensitive, youth-friendly contraceptive, abortion and sexual and gender-based violence services.

Results achieved

Results achieved as of March 2019 include: (1) 198 health providers from 20 health facilities were trained in sexual and gender-based violence, family planning, safe abortion and post-abortion care; (2) 111 teachers and facilitators (of which 53% were women) and 183 community health workers (of which 67% were women) were trained on comprehensive sexuality education and rights; (3) 2,396 adolescent girls and youth women were reached, through home visits, with information on sexual and reproductive health and rights; (4) 36,317 men participated in community dialogues to discuss gender equality, sexual and reproductive health, sexual and gender-based violence, and child, early and forced marriage; and (5) 2,074 referrals from communities to health facilities were made by community health workers for contraception (97%) and abortion (3%). These results have contributed to improved provision and utilization of sexual and reproductive health services in the nine project-supported districts, as demonstrated by: a 19% increase in the number of women who received safe, legal abortions or post-abortion care; a 35% decrease in the number of women who received post-abortion care resulting from unsafe abortions; and a 30% increase in the number of people who received treatment, following sexual and gender-based violence.
