This project supports activities that respond to the COVID-19 pandemic in Mozambique. Project activities include: (1) providing psychosocial support to mentors and girls; (2) strengthening the referral pathway and response to existing and potential cases of violence against girls and young women; (3) strengthening sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) and sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) services in targeted districts; and (4) mobilizing and training a network of adolescent and youth change agents who can inform, co-design and support the COVID-19 response, prevent its spread and mitigate its secondary impact.

Expected results 

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) increased psychosocial support on gender-based violence (GBV), child marriage, teenage pregnancy, and sexual exploitation and abuse for 6,000 mentors and girls; (2) increased access to sexual and reproductive health/GBV services through mobile clinics during the pandemic for 250,000 girls and young women; and (3) increased awareness on how to prevent infection and transmission of COVID-19 and mitigate secondary impacts for 500,000 adolescents and youth.
