Description 

This project aims to help adolescents and young adults, between the ages of 10 and 24, and their communities access better sexual and reproductive health (SRH) care in Ghana, Mozambique, and Uganda. Project activities include: (1) forming and overseeing sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) youth clubs and peer groups, to provide a venue for educating young people on SRH topics, and also to encourage young people to share their knowledge about SRHR-related information with their communities; (2) providing training and coaching to teachers and educators to deliver education and support to adolescents and young adults on SRHR topics; (3) providing training to health workers and health facility administrators and managers to deliver high-quality SRH services, particularly for adolescents and young adults; (4) supplying equipment (including water, sanitation, and hygiene infrastructure) to health care facilities across all three countries; and (5) running mass-media campaigns to raise community awareness around SRHR topics, and encourage advocacy and demand for better policy and services. The project works to benefit over 400,000 adolescents and young adults between the ages of 10 and 24, 60% of whom are girls and young women. This project is implemented in partnership with WaterAid, the Forum for African Women Educationalists, and FHI 360.
