The No Woman or Girl Left Behind project is a five-year project (July 2019-March 2025) implemented through a partnership between Partners In Health Canada, Partners In Health Sierra Leone and Abwenzi Pa Za Umoyo (Partners In Health Malawi).

The intervention aims to improve access to sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) services, especially for adolescents; strengthen care for survivors of sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV); and increase the availability of high-quality obstetric care in Sierra Leone and Malawi.

Project activities will include training health workers, resourcing and delivering clinical care, offering health education programming for young people, and conducting community-based work to raise awareness about women’s and girls’ rights and promote health-seeking behaviour.
