This project aims to empower women and girls in South Sudan to make their own decisions about their sexual and reproductive health, free from discrimination, coercion and violence. This is done by enhancing the availability and quality of sexual and reproductive health services in targeted communities, as well as working with community leaders and members to positively influence attitudes and social norms related to sexual and reproductive health, rights and health services. Project activities include: (1) establishing eighteen static and mobile sexual and reproductive health clinics; (2) engaging 60 community-based sexual and reproductive health promoters to create awareness and mobilize communities to demand services; (3) mapping and disseminating relevant rights and gender equality policy documents in targeted communities; and (4) training 180 volunteers as sexual and reproductive health and rights promoters in three selected communities. The project is expected to reach over 34,000 women and adolescent girls through the delivery of sexual and reproductive health services, and will contribute to improving the health, rights and status of many women and adolescent girls in South Sudan.
