2.1 The SRHR Project/Initiative
In January 2019, World Health Organization (WHO), signed a four-year donor agreement to implement the Initiative “Supporting country strategies to reduce maternal mortality and achieve Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) targets through a health systems approach” which is known as the Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) Initiative. The SRHR Initiative supports countries to make progress toward achieving universal health coverage (UHC) and meeting their SDG targets, particularly with reference to reduction of maternal mortality (SDG 3.1), universal access to sexual and reproductive health care services (SDG 3.7) and sexual and reproductive health and reproductive rights (SDG 5.6). The initiative focuses on supporting countries with a high burden of unintended pregnancy and unsafe abortion to reduce maternal mortality and morbidity from preventable causes.
The Government of Pakistan has undertaken various efforts to gather critical information that aim to fill the current knowledge gaps in regard to SRHR related matters within the country to facilitate the proper planning of the SRH services. For example, a comprehensive situation analysis on status of UHC and SRHR in Pakistan is currently underway. National/ Provincial laws governing various aspects of SRHR such as age at first marriage and abortion are being studied for gaps.
In order to complement the SRHR situation analysis for Pakistan there is a need to study in detail the extent of SRHR service availability and readiness in the health facilities of the country. The Ministry of National Health Services, Regulation & Coordination (MoNHSR&C) with the support of WHO, therefore, have planned to conduct a comprehensive Service Availability Readiness and Assessment (SARA) survey with respect to SRHR and Essential Health Services (EHS) in selected districts covering all Provinces of Pakistan in order to define population needs and health facility capacities in line with the UHC requirements.
Assessment of the availability of health facilities with regard to physical presence and functional presence, and facility readiness to provide health care services, mainly for essential services package including family planning and comprehensive abortion care, are important data sources for monitoring health system capacity to respond to population needs and monitoring health system performance over the years, in addition to providing up to date data and information for planning.
