ActionAid - Program & Service Delivery

DateAugust 21, 2014

ActionAid—an international organisation, working with over 15 million people in 45 countries for a world free from poverty and injustice—will promote a discourse that reflects the importance of women’s sexual health, sexuality and control over their bodies and the importance of eradicating violence against women and women’s social, economic and political exclusion. With the goal of fulfilling its commitments by 2017, ActionAid pledges to organize women and girls in rural areas to challenge and reject the gender-based violence that denies them control over their bodies; secure improvements in the quality, equity and gender responsiveness of public services, including reproductive health services; support women to build and advocate gender-responsive economic alternatives at all levels; convince governments and influential agencies that violence against women is a pivotal barrier to gender equality; and convince governments to enact policies, programs and legislative frameworks to guarantee women full enjoyment of their rights, including the right to sexual and reproductive health. 

Save the Children - Program & Service Delivery

DateJuly 11, 2012

Save the Children commits to strengthening the capacity of 143,600 frontline providers to deliver quality sexual and reproductive health and family planning services that are friendly to adolescents. Save the Children will focus on providing these services to those that are particularly vulnerable and hard-to-reach and will reach more than a quarter of a million adolescent girls. Working to raise awareness of the health and rights of young people, Save the Children will create safe spaces for young mothers and address the needs of girls vulnerable to sexual and gender-based violence.

Recognizing the role of education in empowerment, Save the Children will scale up its work to increase girls’ enrollment, retention and graduation from basic education in four conflict-affected and fragile states, with a view to replication elsewhere. Save the Children will increase access to education for 250,000 girls, bring 10,000 women into teaching and provided professional development to 40,000 women teachers. On a global level, Save the Children will advocate for policies that will remove financial barriers to contraception, increase girls’ education and provide for the sexual education and economic empowerment of women. 

DateJuly 11, 2012

ICRW commits to expanding the evidence base on the importance of addressing socio-cultural barriers—including intimate partner violence, stigma and partner involvement—when striving to meet women’s demand for reproductive control and use of family planning services. ICRW will expand the evidence base linking women’s social and economic empowerment to family planning and sexual and reproductive health.

ICRW will also produce new evidence related to adolescent sexual and reproductive health and rights and strengthen the connection between adolescent girls’ education and sexual and reproductive health outcomes, including delayed marriage and childbearing. This new evidence will help inform the design of family planning and sexual and reproductive health programs and services delivered through governments, the private sector and civil society. In addition, ICRW will develop and validate metrics to improve its understanding of the benefits that education brings to women’s access to and correct use of family planning.

Between 2017 and 2020, Médecins du Monde / Doctors of the World (MdM) will implement Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRH) activities in 13 countries out of the 69 focus countries of FP2020:

  • In Africa: Burkina Faso, Central African Republic, Côte d’Ivoire, DR Congo, Madagascar, Nigeria, Niger, Somalia;
  • In Asia: Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka;
  • In the Carribean: Haïti 
  • In Middle East: Iraq.

Médecins du Monde’s programs will provide access to Family Planning to 1,000,000 people, including 150,000 young people (from 10 to 24 years old).

 In French-speaking countries in the Caribbean (Haiti) and in Africa (Burkina Faso, Côte d’Ivoire DR Congo, Madagascar, Niger), we will implement a program to:

  • At the national level: improve the prevention and management of unwanted pregnancies following the principles of a human rights-based approach and with a specific focus on young people and youth. We will do so through:
  • Strengthening health systems at the local and district levels
  • Empowering rights holders
  • Promoting healthy public policies adapted to the specific needs of youth

In the different intervention areas, we will develop approaches that contribute to make SRH services (e.g. health education, FP, PAC) available, accessible, affordable, and at a high level of quality, especially to young people and adolescents.

  • At the regional and international levels: Advocacy towards regional and international platforms and intergovernmental institutions to keep SRHR at the top of the agenda and advance attention to the needs and rights of young people. This advocacy shall be rooted in sharing promising practices from our field evidence. At the regional level, we will mainly target the West African Health Organization in close collaboration with the Ouagadougou Partnership. We will connect the advocacy work done at international and regional level through increased support and involvement of national CSOs including youth movements. Through this approach we will also aim at strengthening the weight of pro-SRHR voices from francophone Africa.

 In addition to this program, Médecins du Monde will also be working in other countries supported by FP2020. For instance, access to family planning is a core component of the package of services we implement directly (in Nigeria and Iraq), through a local NGO we support (in Somalia) or through reinforcement of the public health system (Sri Lanka, Nepal).

In Nigeria and Iraq, we work in crisis settings where we implement the MISP. This is done through the provision of direct services in mobile health units.

In Sri Lanka and Nepal, we target specifically vulnerable population groups (remote areas and IDPs) to increase access to SRHR through community awareness, improvement of quality service provision and support to local CSOs advocating on SRHR.

In Somalia, we respond to primary healthcare of host population and refugees in Bossasso. The project is implemented through a local organization (ISDP) that aims at strengthening public health facilities and community awareness and mobilization. We have a strong focus on family planning and GBV management.

In Pakistan, we will contribute to the prevention of unwanted pregnancies by focusing on strengthening universal access and quality of family planning public health services through a five-year project in the Province of Punjab.

Médecins du Monde also produces shared resources, including our guidelines, training modules and research studies. For example, in 2015, we conducted a study in Burkina Faso, DRC, Palestine and Peru on the sociocultural and community determinants of unwanted pregnancies. These resources are available in English and French. Most of them are also available in Spanish.

 

As a humanitarian organization, the challenges we face in achieving our commitment include operational and security volatility in the field, as well as fundraising.
