Maverick Collective Project
Maverick Collective Project was an expansion pilot implemented in partnership with the Ministry of Health. It was funded by Population Services International (PSI) under the Maverick collective umbrella.
The project aimed at contributing to a reduction in maternal mortality and neonatal mortality in Uganda. It used a cost effective community distribution model whereby Comprehensive Clean Delivery Kits (C-CDKs) which are mama kits containing misoprostol tablets and chlorhexidine for prevention of PPH and neonatal sepsis respectively are delivered to the pregnant women to improve on birth outcomes for both the mother and the new born who are the target audience.The project was implemented through existing community structures such as the district health system using the district logistics and the distribution system and village health teams.
The Ministry of Health, task force members and the district stake holders were engaged to create an enabling environment for the introduction and the distribution of C-CDK containing misoprostol and chlorhexidine.
PACE engaged village health teams (VHTS) who mapped pregnant women and passed on information, education and communication (IEC) to use the C-CDK using different interpersonal communication skills.
REACHING THE YOUTH WITH SEXUAL REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH SERVICES
In 2016, using the Human Centred Design approach, PACE began work on a project to increase access to Sexual Reproductive Health [SRH] services among young girls aged 15 – 24 years in the districts of Kampala, Wakiso, Buikwe and Mukono. 37,345 female youth were reached with SRH services.
