The programme is aimed at scaling up the provision of quality integrated SRHR/HIV and SGBV services to reduce unintended pregnancies, sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and HIV, maternal and neonatal mortality, and SGBV amongst all people, but with a focus on women, adolescent girls, young people and key populations.

The programme is also intended to help the country to: i) develop, revise, and update the national policies, strategies, plans and ii) to support the delivery of integrated services in order to achieve national objectives and commitments to achieving the SDG global goals and aspirations. These commitments include ending AIDS epidemic and STIs by 2030, reducing preventable maternal and child deaths by 2030, achieve universal access to SRHR services and eliminate gender based violence.
