This project expects to benefit 300,000 adolescent girls and young women, and adolescent boys and young men between the ages of 10 and 25. This project works in partnership with Farm Radio International, Marie Stopes International, Viamo, Girl Effect, Women and Children First, and Malawian partners including the Farm Radio Trust, the Forum of African Women Educationalists Malawi, Banja la Mtsogolo (BLM), MaiKhanda, and numerous local women’s and girls’ groups.

This project aims to help adolescent girls and young women between the ages of 10 and 25 in Malawi access better sexual and reproductive health care. The project’s activities include: i) running a mass-media campaign at the national level to raise awareness and support for more inclusive sexual and reproductive health and rights-related policies and services for adolescent girls and boys and young men and women; ii) training and coaching health-care providers in facilities across Malawi about providing gender-sensitive and adolescent-friendly sexual and reproductive health services; iii) training and coaching teachers and educators-in-training about providing comprehensive sexual education to young Malawians; and iv) organizing and supporting over eight hundred advocacy and peer groups of adolescent girls and boys and young women and men.

The project benefits 300,000 adolescent girls and young women and adolescent boys and young men between the ages of 10 and 25 across Malawi. CODE is implementing this project in partnership with Farm Radio International (FRI), Marie Stopes International (MSI), Viamo, Girl Effect, Women and Children First (WCF), and Malawian partners including the Farm Radio Trust, the Forum of African Women Educationalists Malawi (FAWEMA), Banja la Mtsogolo (BLM), MaiKhanda, and numerous local women’s and girls’ groups. The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) Increased uptake of gender-transformative, age-appropriate SRHR behaviours and practices, including demand for SRHR services, by diverse groups of AGYW; (2) Improved provision of gender-responsive, inclusive, and accountable SRHR services by health-care providers (HCP) for diverse groups of AGYW; (3) Improved effectiveness of key stakeholders, including AGYW and ABYM and women’s and girls’ rights organizations to advocate for evidence-based, accountable, gender-responsive SRHR policies and services.
