The SRHR-HIV Knows No Borders Project (2016-2020), is a holistic Regional initiative which aims to improve sexual and reproductive health and HIV (SRH-HIV) related outcomes amongst migrants as well as non-migrant adolescents, young people, sex workers and others living in migration-affected communities in six countries in the Southern African Development Community (SADC) region including Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, South Africa, Swaziland and Zambia and forms as a critical platform to advocate for increased access to services and an enabling environment for the realization of the SRH and HIV rights for the hard to reach populations (Migrants, Adolescents and Young people and sex workers) along major migration corridors in the SADC region.
- Creating demand for SRHR-HIV services by a) Promoting access to sexual and reproductive health services such as family planning, HIV/STI prevention and treatment for migrants, adolescent and young people and sex workers, b) addressing harmful traditional and cultural practices, SGBV, sexuality, SRH Rights
- Enhance the supply of responsive SRHR –HIV services by (a) building capacity of service providers and support them be more responsive to SRHR-HIV needs of migrants, AYP and Sex Workers (b) enhancing availability of services through collaboration and establishing strong referral mechanisms among and between service providers
- Create enabling local, national and regional environment by a) addressing physical, economic and social barriers to health b) establishing a cadre of SRHR-HIV and Migration advocates by build capacity of policy makers, influencers, academics on SRHR needs and rights of migrants, AYP and Sex Workers
The Wits School of Public Health will support implementation of the project by conducting a baseline study, develop measurement tools to track project results and, conduct mid-term and the end of project evaluation. The ultimate impact the project aims to contribute towards is: improved SRH and HIV related outcomes among the targeted populations in migration affected communities in the six SADC countries namely, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, South Africa, Swaziland and Zambia. The long term objective is: Migrants, adolescent and young people (AYP) and sex workers (SW) in migration affected communities in 6 countries have greater freedom of choice about their sexuality
This overarching goal will be achieved through the following interdependent immediate outcomes:
- Migrants, AYP and SWs have improved knowledge on SRHR-HIV in 6 countries in targeted migration affected communities
- Migrants, AYPs and SWs in 6 countries in target migration affected communities have improved access to and increased use of integrated sexual and reproductive health-HIV services
- Migrants, AYP and SWs SRH-HIV Rights and needs are institutionalized at local, national and regional levels
Provision of technical support and capacity development are crucial implementation strategies of the project. It is seen as an investment in the future sustainability of project results, which will both enhance our ability to improve the health outcomes of migrants, AYP and sex workers and also to ensure communities affected by migration have the capacity to develop, implement and manage SRHR-HIV initiatives. With regard to the 2nd project outcome, one of the preparatory activities for capacity development of service providers from health and non-health sectors is the development of sensitization materials and tools
