Advocacy on Human Development
Advocacy on Human Development commits to the Global Strategy (2016-2030) by promoting family planning in peri urban areas in Zambia. We will advocate for family planning, access to healthcare and prevention of unsafe delivery. We will engage 1600 adolescents and women to acquire knowledge on family planning and safe delivery. We expect the following outcomes: (1) By the year 2020 maternal deaths due to unsafe delivery by the pregnant mothers would be prevented and encouraged through attendance of antenatal clinic sessions; (2) By the year 2020 family planning would be promoted in peri urban areas in order to have sustainable and manageable sized families. (3) By the year 2020 health centres would be advocated to operate 24hrs/7days to allow pregnant mothers and sick children to attend health centres to reduce maternal and child mortality.
