The project contributes to the improvement of sexual and reproductive health (general objective) by increasing the exercise of women's rights in the three target locations (specific target) using the participatory methodology of resource groups that puts women at the center of the action and their health as the focus of the intervention. Thanks to this methodology, alliances are created between women and between women and communities and institutions that allow a better and concerted resolution of problems, to which a specialized technical support is associated. At least 120 women from the target communities and their aggregative forms are strengthened in their capacity of mobilization and advocacy on sexual and reproductive rights (R1), through creation, empowerment or strengthening of resource women groups; each group develops a public agenda for women on sexual and reproductive health and organizes public initiatives with women to discuss the results of the agendas. Thus women acquire capacity and decision-making autonomy on their sexual and reproductive health (R2), implementing initiatives to change behaviours that limit the full exercise of their rights: a campaign aimed at husbands/fathers; mothers-in-law/mothers; sons/ daughters; a pilot community action to apply a social security system; the strengthening of Sédhiou's boutique de droit which offers a space and skills to deal with violations of rights. At the same time it is necessary to improve the quality and access to sexual and reproductive health services of the health facilities of the target locations (R3): technical training and coaching to take into account the needs of women; equipment and supplies for the local health facilities; a regional communication campaign on the provision of services and good practices on sexual and reproductive health, addressed to the general public. Institutions (municipalities, health districts, medical region) must incorporate women's claims on reproductive sexual rights into their priorities (R4): staff training on gender approach and techniques of involvement and participation of women; consultation between resource groups, institutions and health services to discuss agendas and negotiate common interventions; pilot actions within the inter-institutional committees. read more close
