Description


The project aims to offer greater availability and use of primary health care services, including sexual and reproductive health (SRH), such as maternal and newborn care, of women and girls in Kinshasa in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). The project also contributes to strengthening management of health centres and access to SRH services by women and girls, including family planning, contraceptive methods and post-abortion care. Project activities include: (1) providing ongoing training to health care providers, taking into account the specific needs of women and girls; (2) purchasing medical and non-medical equipment; (3) strengthening the system for procuring medicines; and (4) supporting health care personnel in order to increase their capacity to promote best practices and raise community awareness in order to promote the health and rights of women and girls.
