The project aims to improve the availability of gender- and environmentally-sensitive data. With a focus on sexual and reproductive health, this project seeks to strengthen evidence-based decision-making in the health sector in Mozambique. This includes institutionalising the Service Availability and Readiness Assessment (SARA), an internationally recognised tool, within the Ministry of Health. The tool collects critical data on the status of infrastructure, equipment and human resources in all health facilities in the country, generating a robust baseline of the services currently offered and identifying gaps in service delivery. For example, the tool provides data on whether a healthy facility provides sexual and reproductive health services (such as family planning), and whether it has the basic infrastructure, staff and equipment needed to deliver these services, such as trained healthcare professionals, medicines, water, electricity, and biological waste disposal systems. The project also aims to strengthen the Ministry of Health’s capacity to analyse this data and develop strategies and budgets that respond to the health needs of women and men, boys and girls. The project is expected to reach over 1,800 health staff equipped with the necessary data to effectively plan activities, contributing to the health of approximately 20 million women and children.
