Supporting civil society engagement in the Every Woman Every Child movement in Mozambique

ICRH-Mozambique has won a small grant on behalf of the Reproductive and Sexual Rights Network to support Mozambican civil society engagement, alignment, and coordinated action for improved women’s, children’s, and adolescents’ health (WCAH).

The grant was obtained from the GFF (Global Financing Facility) / MSH (Management Sciences for Health). The GFF is an international funding mechanism supporting country-level implementation of the Global Strategy for Women’s, Children’s and Adolescents’ Health as part of the Every Woman, Every Child movement. In Mozambique it has been providing funds since 2018 to develop and now implement of the Investment Case for Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn, Child and Adolescent Health (RMNCAH). The GFF recognises and aims to support the important role of civil society in ensuring that programmes and policies are anchored in the reality of the populations they aim to serve, ensuring that the most marginalised and vulnerable are reached.

This project focusses on informing civil society organisations about national WCAH priorities and the GFF, and building capacity of the Rede DSR and its member organizations in Tete and Gaza provinces to strengthen monitoring, advocacy and communication actions, focusing on SRH information and services for adolescents and young people. The project includes consultation with young people themselves about the policies and programmes that affect them.
