Description


This project aims to improve access to sexual and reproductive health care for marginalized and vulnerable people, particularly adolescent girls and women, in Mali, Niger, and Sierra Leone. The project’s activities include: (1) raising awareness among adolescent girls and women around sexual and reproductive health and rights through community education campaigns; (2) training community-based health care providers and health facility staff about providing gender-responsive, adolescent-friendly sexual and reproductive health services and care; (3) educating men and adolescent boys, community leaders, government officials and other people in positions of power on gender-based discrimination, models of positive masculinity, and prevention of domestic and sexual and gender-based violence (among other topics); and ((4) helping girls’ and women’s rights and advocacy groups demand better and more inclusive and accessible sexual and reproductive health and rights policy from their governments. The project benefits over 450,000 people, the majority adolescent girls and women. Save the Children Canada is implementing this project in partnership with the International Rescue Committee (IRC), EquiPop (Equilibres et Populations), the Overseas Development Institute (ODI), and SickKids.
