CONTRIBUTION TO FAMILY PLANNING

CARE is committed to advancing health equity and rights for all, with a special focus on ensuring sexual and reproductive health and rights in both stable and fragile/crisis-affected settings. We take a rights-based, public-health approach that addresses discrimination and disparities in all their forms, and which ensures equitable to access to quality health services.

In response to COVID-19, CARE is working with local partners and governments to slow the spread of the virus, protect and empower health providers, strengthen community-based health and support systems, ensure continuity of essential health services (including SRHR) and build back resilient and inclusive health systems.

About project: 

Health Access and Linkage Opportunities for Workers Plus (HALOW+), funded by GSK, is aimed at strengthening the learning of the pilot project that was carried out in 2015 and widen its impact. The pilot project focused on four key areas of interventions, aimed at improving healthcare access for RMG workers and improve their health and nutrition-seeking behavior; increasing preventative and curative service uptake by RMG workers; mobilizing communities and creating referral networks and service linkage for RMG workers and their families and creating shared platforms to address underlying health and nutritional issues faced by workers.
