This project seeks to positively transform gender relations to improve the health of women and adolescent girls in Senegal, particularly their nutrition and reproductive health (RH). The project targets 200,000 pregnant/nursing women and 600,000 adolescent girls in the 5 regions most affected by gender inequalities and malnutrition, and worsened by the impact of the pandemic: Kaffrine, Kédougou, Kolda, Sédhiou and Tambacounda.

Project activities include : (1) offering professional development in the field of women’s nutrition; (2) developing a strategy to attract women and adolescent girls and build their capacity in positions of leadership, collective action and advocacy on health matters (nutrition and RH); (3) conducting communication and awareness raising activities to help women and girls better understand their rights and needs when it comes to nutrition, RH and gender equality; (4) providing entrepreneurship training to build women’s capacity to manage and ensure the sustainability of micro-, small and medium enterprises that promote nutrition; (5) providing technical assistance to institutionalize gender equality in 12 ministries that contribute to people’s good nutritional status, with the goal of improving service quality; and (6) supporting communities to ensure influential people are engaged in promoting the equitable sharing of power and responsibilities between women and men with regard to health (nutrition and RH).
