SARAI 1

Sexual and Reproductive Health for All Initiative

Due to various challenges that include long distances to health facilities, limited knowledge about the various family planning methods that exist, various myths and misconceptions about the use of family planning, the Sexual and Reproductive Health Initiative for All (SARAI) project in 2015 started with the aim of contributing towards the Zambian Government’s goal of increasing prevalence rate for modern contraceptive from 33% in 2007 to 58% by 2020, hence reducing some of these challenges.

The project operates in 15 districts of Copperbelt, Luapula and Muchinga Provinces, implemented in 143 health facilities, working with 830 Community Based Distributors (CBDs), 1,455 Champions and 165 out-of-school youth clubs, providing family planning and sexual and reproductive health services in the communities.

The 830 Community Based Distributors provides family planning services to women. The project volunteers reach a population covering over 400,000 people with sexual and reproductive health messages focusing on safer sexual behaviour among youths and distributes condoms in the communities.

As a result of these family interventions, mothers and babies are healthier, because pregnancies will be spaced and childbearing will be delayed until a woman becomes an adult, young women and men are better enabled to pursue and complete their education and women are empowered to improve their economic status and livelihood, with multiplier effects for their families and children.

An innovative pass on gift system for economic empowerment of the Community Based Distributors has so resulted in a 97% retention with 830 active out of the 855 trained.
