Description and results

Description

This project aims to improve the sexual and reproductive health and rights for women and girls in selected regions of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Nigeria and Zambia. The project seeks to strengthen social and political support for women’s and girls’ access to high-quality abortion and contraceptive care and increase the use of these services. Project activities include: (1) providing training on values clarification and attitude transformation to key stakeholders, including Members of Parliament, African Union Commissioners, government officials, youth organizations and partners who are advocating for reform of abortion and family planning laws, especially in the DRC and Adamawa State, Nigeria; (2) increasing the number of facilities that offer high-quality abortion care to women and girls in Zambia and Nigeria; and (3) enhancing community-based organizations and other stakeholders’ capacity to work with poor, underserved women living in hard-to-reach areas.

Expected results

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) improved social and political support for women's and girls’ access to high-quality abortion and contraceptive care by key influencers and policymakers in Africa; and (2) increased use of high-quality abortion, post-abortion care, and contraception by women and girls, including survivors of gender-based violence, in the North-Western and Eastern Provinces of Zambia and in Adamawa State, Nigeria.
