Improving access and utilization of quality sexual and reproductive health services by migrants in Morocco
This project will contribute to addressing sexual and reproductive health (SRH) and gender-based violence (GBV)-related morbidity and mortality among migrants residing in Morocco, particularly among women and girls. The project’s activities will include a population survey, focus groups and interviews with migrant women and girls, healthcare providers and health managers. The study sites will consist of geographic areas popular with migrants, mainly in Casablanca, Rabat and Tangiers. Analysis will identify barriers and determinants of access and utilization of SRH/GBV services, focusing on the impact of poor and disadvantaged living conditions. This information will then support the development and rolling out of relevant intervention(s) with the aim to evaluate and validate their impact.
Project outputs will include scientific articles, research reports, policy reports and policy briefs, among other knowledge translation products, and a national conference focusing on recommendations to integrate successful interventions into the national migrant policy and program. The overall aim is to enhance accessibility and utilization of existing public SRH and GBV services by migrant women and girls residing in Morocco.
