The project, which was implemented by CEDEP and supported by DFID/Save the Children (UK) sought to foster partnerships between Civil Society, Service Providers and communities for effective formulation and implementation of responsive reproductive health interventions. The project used community education and mobilization to influence community members to adopt lifestyles and practices that promote good sexual and reproductive health.

 

A nurse was attached to each of the LNGOs to enhance their capacity to deliver quality information on sexual and reproductive health. Under this project CEDEP built the capacity, supervised and monitored 8 other Local NGOs (LNGOs) to implement the project in the Ashanti and Brong Ahafo Regions. CEDEP thus acted as both technical and financial intermediaries in the project implementation process.

CEDEP also facilitated the advocacy component of the project, which involves sensitizing communities about child rights, family and sexual and reproductive rights as well as lobby policy makers to upgrade laws on child rights, domestic violence and gender equity.
