Following an announcement by The Honourable Harjit S. Sajjan, Minister of International Development and Minister responsible for the Pacific Economic Development Agency of Canada, ADRA Canada is pleased to be collaborating with Global Affairs Canada and partners to ensure that some of the most vulnerable people, especially women and girls, in Cambodia, Kenya, the Philippines, and Uganda can exercise their health-related human rights.
With assistance from Canada, over the next six years, the Uniting Towards Gender Equality for the enjoyment of women’s and girls’ Total Health and Rights (TOGETHER) project will work to increase the enjoyment of health-related rights for the most vulnerable children, adolescent girls and boys, and women and men in Cambodia, Kenya, the Philippines, and Uganda, especially those with intersecting vulnerabilities in indigenous, remote or resettlement settings.
Many vulnerable people face significant barriers to quality healthcare and cannot exercise their rights regarding their health. TOGETHER will address several of these issues, particularly focusing on indigenous, remote, or resettled areas.
In speaking about the project, ADRA Canada’s Executive Director, Steve Matthews, said, “I thank Global Affairs Canada for selecting ADRA as a trusted partner to make a positive difference in the thousands of lives who will be empowered by the TOGETHER project and our Network partners without whom this project would not be possible.”
We look forward to delivering transformational programming through our partnerships with SickKids, Salanga, and the ADRA offices in Cambodia, Kenya, the Philippines, and Uganda.
