This project funds activities to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic in Mozambique. Project activities include: (1) raising awareness on good practices to prevent the spread of COVID-19 by translating material into Portuguese and disseminating it via community radio, television and social media; (2) orienting community health workers on the implications of the COVID-19 pandemic for women and girls; (3) supporting local health facilities by providing protective equipment to contain the spread of COVID-19; and (4) helping vulnerable girls and women and their families meet their essential needs, such as covering transportation cost to health clinics.

Expected results 

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) improved effectiveness of government protection institutions to deliver gender-responsive sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) services for girls and young women; (2) enhanced agency and decision-making by girls and young women to protect themselves from SGBV and be active change agents; and (3) enhanced community and support systems that advance gender equality for girls and young women by strengthening their agency, rights and protection from SGBV and gender discrimination.
