Government policies in Bangladesh recognise that sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) services and information are crucial. However, the technical capacity of health workers to provide them needs to be strengthened, especially to ensure the inclusion of vulnerable women and men, young people, people with disabilities and people from minority groups.
“We Care” aims to change this by better equipping health workers to deliver SRHR services at the union level and in communities and schools. The project is also equipping supervisors with the skills, attitudes and motivation needed to provide appropriate supervision to ensure inclusive SRHR information and service delivery.
The focus of the project includes Family Welfare Visitors (FWV), Family Welfare Assistants (FWA), Sub-Assistant Community Medical Officers (SACMOs) and their supervisors (Family Planning Inspectors and Mother and Child Health Medical Officers).
