The goal of this project is to improve the sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) of adolescent girls and women, and to reduce maternal and newborn mortality among vulnerable populations in Bolivia. This is to be achieved through a rights-based approach that is adolescent-friendly and culturally-sensitive. The project addresses barriers to adolescents’ demand for reproductive and sexual health services, challenges in the provision of such services and community and institutional level governance and accountability. Plan Canada works with CIES (Bolivian NGO) to implement the project in 12 municipalities in the departments of La Paz, Cochabamba, Chuquisaca and Potosí.

Results & Indicators

Expected Results

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) enhanced ability of adolescents, women of reproductive age and pregnant women to exercise their sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) and use gender-transformative, culturally-sensitive, and adolescent-friendly sexual and reproductive health services; (2) improved delivery of high quality gender-transformative, adolescent-friendly and culturally-sensitive sexual and reproductive health services to women and adolescent girls and boys; and (3) improved quality of participatory local health governance systems for delivery of evidence-based, culturally-sensitive, adolescent-friendly and gender-transformative SRHR services.

Achieved Results

Results achieved as of April 2019 include: (1) Project Implementation Plan and Baseline study was developed and completed with the endorsement of all key actors, including the Ministry of Health; (2) the mapping of adolescent and youth networks and organizations was completed in each of the municipalities and communities targeted in the project, as well as of local women’s organizations, in order to develop a strategy for strengthening networks and coordination with support from local government partners; and (3) existing legal and regulatory frameworks, training modules and materials on sexual and reproductive health and rights in the country were reviewed to identify gaps, leading for example to the development of a new training module on interculturality and gender which is used in the Champions of Change training.
