Mapping Exercise for Civil Society Organisations. Working with Women, Adolescents & Young People
The eastern and southern African region has made significant progress in advancing women, children & adolescent health. Yet much work remains to be done to defend these gains, to learn from them and to take them forward and achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by the year 2030.
Health for women, children and adolescents is a right and not a privilege. We believe that rights-based health is about the freedom to flourish, the opportunity to choose futures without harming others, and the right to live in a state of dignity.
Government, civil society and the private sector all have roles to play in making extraordinary commitments to accelerate achievements for women, children and adolescents.
The Southern African AIDS Trust (SAT) has served regional civil society for over 25 years. We are teaming up with other civil society across the region to support the creation of a robust strategic dialogue on achieving health and gender equality for all; to see concerted regional and national action to scale up political, financial, legislative and other commitments and delivery to Women’s, Children’s & Adolescent’s health. We also want to see the voice of civil society enhanced as the region works towards the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals and health for all.
To this end SAT will support a mapping exercise in civil society to show and share where women’s organisations (led by women for women); organisations working with women; and organisations working with adolescents and young people (under 25) are situated and what they do.
This in an opportunity to put your organisation on a map – really on a real map – for all to see. The online map of CSOs will be shared with other civil society organisations, governments, UN agencies and international donors. We hope that the open publication of these data will help in better health planning, better utilisation of resources, and better collaboration among key stakeholders.
