The FANMKAD project is implemented over a 4-year period by CARE Canada, Avocats sans frontières Canada, and Santé Monde with CARE Canada as the lead partner.
The Project aims to improve the exercise of the right to health of Haitians, particularly to sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) of women and adolescent girls. It will be implemented at the departmental level in the South-East and at the national level in Port-au-Prince.
The Project will use a multisectoral approach, based on two components:
1) strengthening the continuum of care, integrating the participation of rights holders, women and men, including civil society organizations, particularly organizations defending the rights of women and adolescent girls and communities, through the development and delivery of a rights-respecting, age-appropriate and gender-appropriate sexual and reproductive health package of services and care for adolescent girls and women and managed according to the principles of inclusive governance; and
2) the active social mobilization of parents, men, adolescents and opinion leaders, and the strengthening of SRHR knowledge of women and adolescent girls in order to ensure positive social transformation in the targeted areas, go; and, on the other hand, strengthening the capacity of civil society organizations to effectively promote reproductive health and rights (RHR) at the national and international level, to provide services respectful of RHR and gender equality, and to support victims of gender-based violence in their efforts to demand the implementation of their RHR.
