This project aims to improve human rights related to the sexual and reproductive health of women and adolescent girls in the Bas-Sassandra district of Côte d'Ivoire. The activities of this project include: (1) providing technical assistance to local health authorities on planning, managing, and monitoring the delivery of gender-sensitive, inclusive, and accountable sexual and reproductive health services; (2) delivering a training program for health personnel on modern sexual and reproductive health approaches that respond to the needs of adolescent girls; (3) organize awareness campaigns on adolescent sexual and reproductive health and rights that target community members, particularly parents, religious leaders, and adolescents; and (4) establish mobile teams to provide sexual and reproductive health and rights support to out-of-school youth. This project aims to directly benefit more than 165,000 adolescent girls and indirectly benefit 264,000 people, including 4,000 health and education sector intermediaries, and approximately 260,000 members of the target communities, particularly parents, religious leaders, and adolescents.
