Solutions for Supporting Healthy Adolescents and Rights Protection (SHARP) is a four year, EU funded programme implemented in Burundi, DRC, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania, Zambia and at regional level (EAC, ICGLR). The programme aims to contribute to improved adolescents’ sexual and reproductive health and rights (ASRHR) in the Great Lakes region (Burundi, DRC, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania and Zambia).
One of SHARP’s objectives is that health service providers in the public, private and faith sectors have quality assured SRH services and commodities, including for family planning, are available. To achieve this, HAI and Faith to Action Network will conduct a health facility research measuring the price, availability, affordability and stock-outs of SRH commodities.
A modified version of the HAI/World Health Organization (WHO) methodology to measure price, availability and affordability of more than 50 WHO recommended SRHC, as well as perceived supply-chain and demand-side barriers to access by adolescents. Following structured training sessions, in-country data collectors will visit private, public, faith/not-for-profit healthcare facilities. The data collectors will also interview healthcare workers providing SRH services at the respective facilities to determine existing challenges to providing SRH services and commodities to adolescents according to different vulnerabilities. Including if they ever have to sell ‘no’ to adolescents, if reluctance exists to provide certain client groups with commodities, and whether they believe they are properly equipped (materials, knowledge, skills) to provide adequate SRH services.
