The Activity prioritizes improving the quality of RMNCAHN services along the continuum of care in targeted districts (Result 3) and community engagement for improved RMNCAHN (Result 4). While building MOH capacity at all levels to plan, budget, implement and monitor RMNCAHN services is an essential component of health system strengthening, the majority of resources should contribute to Results 3 and 4. The estimated levels of effort (LOE) are only illustrative and provide an indication to the Applicant. When developing its proposal, the Applicant can propose its own level of effort for reaching the activity goal.
The Activity seeks to strengthen integration of health and nutrition services. Where possible, the Activity will support the integration of reproductive health services to improve women’s and adolescents’ health, reduce missed opportunities, and ensure a holistic approach to health.
The Activity seeks to strengthen equitable access and the quality of health and nutrition services for adolescents, specifically for adolescent girls most at risk of poor health outcomes. Reaching the most vulnerable girls (ten to 19 years old) will require a broad range of tailored, targeted strategies, including strategies to ensure that young married pregnant women have access to quality services.
