With financial support from the BMZ, GIZ is implementing the project “Strengthening Girls Rights! Reproductive Health, Family Planning, and HIV prevention for pupils in Zambia” (SGR). The project enables young people, especially young women, and girls aged 10-24 years, to exercise their rights, make use of counseling services and take action for sexual and reproductive health, HIV prevention, and non-violent gender relations. It is implemented in partnership with the National HIV/AIDS/STI/TB Council (NAC) and other stakeholders in Luapula, Lusaka, Northwestern, and Southern province. Among other things, the project works directly with local authorities to strengthen the decentralized, multi-sectoral HIV response and scale-up evidence-based interventions for young people, such as the Join-In Circuit on AIDS, Love and Sexuality.
