Narrative description of project:
The DFID “Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRH) programme” intends to improve the SRH among the most vulnerable population (in particular women and adolescent girls), decrease HIV incidence and support Family Planning (FP). The programme brings together £57 million and runs from 2012 until end of 2015.
Combined with co-funding from other partners, the SRH programme is known as the Integrated Support Programme (ISP). The ISP Steering Committee (ISPSC), comprising the major donors and main bi- and multilateral partners, provides a platform for oversight and coordination across the four ISP pillars:
• Pillar 1: Integrated SRH, scaling up voluntary male circumcision – focusing on private sector
• Pillar 2: FP, gender-based violence, male circumcision – focusing on public sector
• Pillar 3: Supply Chain Management of FP commodities
• Pillar 4: Evaluation of impact
To assess the progress and programme-specific operational issues, three annual reviews and one project completion report have been requested.
