Titre : Leave No Woman Behind Joint Pogramme (Ethiopia)

Pays : Ethiopie

Dates : 11 Sep 2007 — 30 Jun 2013

Identification : 00067142

The JP was developed with an aim to support the on-going national effort to address the challenges faced by women and girls, which derive from their low status in society, high prevalence of harmful traditional practices (such as child marriage, abduction, vulvectomy, tonsillectomy or food discrimination), limited knowledge and access to reproductive health services, vulnerability to HIV/AIDS and limited livelihoods opportunities. The JP reached out to over 51,000 community members to engage in regular conversations in order to increase awareness, affect attitudes towards girls and women and ultimately prevent harmful practices. Some of the resulting achievements include condemnation and action against harmful practices by faith based organizations, as well as the report and interruption of 497 child marriages and 1,500 FGM (female genital mutilation) cases. Through outcome 2 and its life skills and literacy component the Programme reached nearly 120,000 adolescent girls and women. Changes reported include improved class performance due to increased support from parents, as well as higher enrollment and retention rates. Through their sensitization on reproductive health efforts under outcome 3 the programme reached over 141,000 women and increased women’s reproductive health seeking behavior, with over 52,000 women having received voluntary counseling and testing. In addition 982 health extension workers and health facility staff received training on Reproductive health, HIV and other gender related issues. As a result of outcome 4 over 13,000 households reported an increase in savings and/or access to credit. 8,000 women received credit for income generating activities (IGAs) together with follow up support. Beneficiaries reported enhanced capacity to contribute to their children’s education and to buy house
