IMPACT2-Liptako (Niger)


Titre : IMPACT2-Liptako (Niger)

Pays : Niger

Date : 2020–2022

Niger has one of the highest fertility rate in the world, and sexual and reproductive health and rights are limited due to socio-cultural norms and a lack of awareness about sexuality. The IMPACT2-Liptako project takes a gender transformation approach to this challenge, one that examines, challenges, and changes rigid gender norms and power imbalances that ultimately lead to improved sexual and reproductive rights – with a focus on adolescent girls and young women.

* Established a gender-transformative approach – one that examines, challenges and changes rigid gender norms and power imbalances – to sexual and reproductive health and family planning in four regions. * Focused on education for adolescents and young girls – including brides and unmarried girls – in the Dosso and Tillabery regions, through group discussions, community leaders, and plays and lectures. * Strengthened the management and referral systems of GBV survivors. * Strengthened advocacy to promote education and access to sexual and reproductive health services for adolescents and unmarried children in schools and communities. * Implemented a national advocacy strategy that targets institutions including the Ministry of Health and Ministry of Secondary Education.

Financement : Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs
