This project seeks to improve access to sexual and reproductive health services (including family planning), as well as strengthening the capacity of community-based health workers to deliver sexual and reproductive health services, and promoting sexual and reproductive rights. The project focuses on improving the sexual and reproductive health of more than 635,000 women (aged 15-49 years), including 320,000 adolescents (aged 15-24 years). Project activities include: (1) increasing the capacity of health centres to deliver emergency obstetric and neonatal care; (2) providing nutrition and sexual and reproductive health services (including at least five family planning methods); (3) behaviour change communication activities; (4) providing care for victims of gender-based violence; and (5) completing a mapping activity in order to develop a data management system for data on female adolescent reproductive health and sexual and gender based violence.
