NEW SAF PROJECT- WOMEN ACCESSING NEW TECHNOLOGY (WANT)

The SAAF project is also dubbed “Women Accessing New Technology” (WANT). The aim of the project, which spans from 2014 till 2016, is to increase access to reproductive health and family planning services in Ovia North East LGA of Edo State. This will be achieved through training of mid level providers (nurses, midwives, CHEWs, pharmacists) to offer reproductive health and family planning services and the provision of reproductive health and family planning commodities in the target area.

Currently the SAAF team is conducting a baseline survey on the knowledge and practice of mid level providers (MLPs) regarding reproductive health and family planning services, through in-depth interviews. The following activities have been carried out since the inception of the project in January 2014.

  • Visit to executive members of MLP associations including community nurses, midwives, CHEWs and pharmacists to intimate them with the program objectives. The project team was well received during the visits while the executive members thanked the organization for their foresight in implementing such a project and pledged their support throughout the course of the project.
  • Visits to Ovbiogie and nearby communities to interview MLPs on the knowledge and practice of RH and FP services in Ovia North East LGA of Edo State. During the visits the team members successfully conducted some interview sessions among the MLPs
  • The team has also earmarked at least 10 MLP facilities so far, for the proposed intervention (3 pharmacies, 5 PMV, 1 clinic and 1 maternity home)
  • In addition the team has contacted at least 35 MLPs in Ovia North East LGA so far and interviewed a total of 20 MLPs
    The report of the baseline survey is expected to be presented in a stakeholder’s forum in April 2014. Thereafter the team will conduct training of the MLPs and then supply some earmarked health facilities with reproductive health and family planning commodities to enable them carry out the specified services.
