KPMG was commissioned to undertake the end of programme evaluation of the UNESCO project to strengthen sexual and reproductive health and HIV prevention amongst children and young people through promoting comprehensive sexuality education (CSE) in Eastern and Southern Africa (ESA).
The situational analysis is intended to provide a high-level analysis of the current state of access to SRHR services by young persons with disabilities across the ESA region.
The Regional Strategic Guidance is intended to be used as a guide to planning, programming and resourcing efforts to achieve improved access to SRHR by young people with disabilities.
Increasing children’s and young people’s knowledge on sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) is seen as a critical component in reducing a large number of challenges in Eastern and Southern Africa (ESA), including HIV and AIDS, teenage marriage, and teenage pregnancy in particular.
