Description 

This project aims to improve access to sexual and reproductive health services for vulnerable adolescent girls and women aged 15 to 24 in Rwanda. The project’s activities include: (1) training and supporting community youth educators, so as to equip them to raise awareness among their peers and communities about sexual and reproductive health and rights; (2) training health care workers and health facility administrators on providing adolescent-friendly sexual and reproductive health services including family planning, abortion and post-abortion care, maternal and newborn health care, and support for survivors of sexual and gender-based violence; and (3) a Canada-based awareness-raising campaign aimed at involving young Canadians across the country in advocacy around sexual and reproductive health and rights. The project benefits over 120,000 thousand people, most of them adolescent girls and women, across Rwanda. L’AMIE is implementing this project in partnership with the Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada (SOGC), Sexplique, and the Rwandan-based Réseau des femmes oeuvrant pour le développement rural.

Expected results 

The expected outcomes of this project include: (1) Increased equitable use of health services by diverse groups of women, adolescent girls and children as rights holders; and (2) Improved delivery of gender-sensitive, inclusive and accountable health services by health care providers for diverse groups of women, adolescent girls and children.

Results achieved as of March 2023: (1) 1,509 community members in the Gasabo district, including 215 teenage girls and 307 teenage boys, were sensitized to the various issues related to sexual and reproductive health and rights.
