Copper Rose Zambia


Copper Rose Zambia (CRZ) commits to training at least 100 peer educators who will work in youth friendly spaces increasing access to family planning services in Eastern, Copperbelt, Southern and Lusaka provinces of Zambia by 2020. The peer educators will be young people between 19 and 24 with a target outreach of adolescents and youth between 10 and 35.

Copper Rose Zambia commits to providing information about family planning and linkage to services to at least 20,000 adolescents and youth in Zambia by 2020. CRZ will conduct workshops, awareness sessions and use mainstream media to engage young people to increase uptake of family planning services. By working with partners, CRZ will provide youth friendly services by youth for youth whilst linking young people to services in second and third level facilities that may not be available at primary healthcare sites. By committing to provision of youth friendly services, CRZ will be contributing to the FP2020 targets, in support of Every Woman Every Child, to ensure that young people have access to life saving prevention, treatment and care, where and when they need it.
