ICRH-Mozambique is partnering with the Faculty of Medicine of Eduardo Mondlane University to implement the I-SHARE study in Mozambique.

While Mozambique has been making strides towards improving provision of adolescent-friendly health services, there are still young people that are consistently excluded especially those with disabilities. ICRH-Mozambique is now partnering in two projects funded by the Flemish Government to reach these groups.

Welcome in this bizarre new environment since the COVID-19 pandemic changed the world in unprecedented ways, raising new challenges for health, and for sexual and reproductive health and human rights worldwide. Humanity is resilient and able to adapt to new situations, but none of us have ever lived a pandemic with such a huge global impact on all people of the world, especially the most vulnerable ones.

The Academic Network on Sexual and Reproductive Health Policies (ANSER) initiated a study on the impact of the COVID-19 isolation measures on sexual and reproductive health and wellbeing.

In Ghent, Belgium and Maputo Mozambique there was simultaneously in the month of March 2020 a photo exhibition in the corridors of both University Hospitals.

As part of her doctoral studies and supported by the Marleen Temmerman Fund, Anna Galle maid a participatory film about fatherhood in Southern Mozambique, named “The pregnancy is ours”.

2019 will be remembered as the year of the Nairobi Summit ICPD+25, marking the 25th anniversary of the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD). In 1994 in Cairo, 179 governments adopted the concept of ‘reproductive rights’ and subscribed to a landmark Programme of Action (POA) empowering women and girls to take their own decisions, for their own benefit as well as for the benefit of their families and communities.

In Mozambique there is increasing attention to addressing the sexual & reproductive health (SRH) issues faced by adolescent girls, including unplanned pregnancy, HIV/STIs, violence, and early marriage. A key issue for girls that is often not addressed in adolescent SRH programmes is menstrual health management (MHM).
