PITCH H&O Vietnam SCDI

Project

In Vietnam, the work on adolescent girls and young women started with a needs assessment of obstacles and barriers caused by (self)stigma, discrimination and legislation towards young women and adolescent girls who are highly exposed to HIV. This will inform the advocacy agenda for 2017 and 2018. A strong focus will be on empowering leadership among AGYW, strengthening their capacity to demand good quality services and advocate for change, and mobilizing the communities in favour or SRHR of AGYW.

Background

PITCH seeks to strengthen the capacities of local civil society organisations to advocate for sexual and reproductive health and rights, and uphold the human rights of key populations. Our work centres around key populations, adolescent girls and young women in nine countries in East, West and Southern Africa, South-East Asia, and Central Europe. These communities in many contexts carry the main HIV burden. At the same time, they are often neglected in the HIV response and face many barriers in accessing HIV and SRH services as well as human rights violations. PITCH addresses this urgent gap, and is reactive and responsive to local needs/urgencies that have been identified in its geographical foci.
