OUR WORK AND IMPACT

Adolescent Transition West Africa (ATWA)

Adolescent Transition in West Africa (ATWA) is a four-year program in Mali, Burkina Faso, and Niger that aims to influence and promote positive adolescent sexual and reproductive health rights (ASRHR) outcomes among very young and older adolescents. The ATWA intervention will target both in-school and out-of-school adolescents through Life Skills Education, including Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM), and improving the availability and accessibility of adolescent-responsive SRH services. The program also seeks to address some of the interrelated drivers of poor SRHR such as inequitable gender norms and community norms surrounding adolescent sexual and reproductive health. Save the Children-Netherlands is leading the intervention, and UCSD/GEH, along with local partner, OASIS-Niger, is leading the formative research and outcome evaluation components of the grant
