HALOW+ Health Intervention Baseline Report

HALOW+ (an extension of the Health Access and Linkage Opportunities for Workers project) is a partnership among GSK, M&S, and CARE, aimed at increasing Bangladeshi factory workers’ knowledge, empowerment, and access to health services. These workers often have low economic and social status, making it difficult for them to advocate for their needs. Because there is significant room for improvement in workers’ health (e.g., anemia is prevalent), and improved health is not just a benefit to workers but also facilitates greater productivity, this project combines the expertise of the three partner organizations to improve worker health and factory outcomes.

Towards Improved Economic and Sexual Reproductive Health Outcomes for Adolescent Girls (TESFA) Project Baseline Qualitative Study Report

Operational in Ethiopia since 1984, CARE’s involvement into sexual and reproductive health (SRH) and maternal, newborn and child Health (MNCH) programming began in 1995 with the Family Planning and HIV/AIDS program. Since that time, CARE has gained expertise in the design and implementation of family planning and MNCH programs in Ethiopia by piloting innovative approaches, social analysis and action, village saving and loan association, mobilizing communities, encouraging behavior change communication, and engaging with government and local organizations etc. CARE Ethiopia's experience working with stakeholders at various levels to develop and implement sustainable family planning and MNCH activities, combined with global leadership in SRH, MNCH and HIV/AIDS equips CARE with the unique skills to tackle enduring and emerging issues that affect the health and wellbeing of women, men and children of Ethiopia.

TESFA Qualitative Final Evaluation Report


TESFA project, funded by Johnson and Johnson Corporate Contributions, started in January 2015 aiming to reach 3,000 ever-married adolescent girls in order to bring measurable, positive change to ever married girls' sexual and reproductive health (SRH) and economic status. CARE Ethiopia has significant experience working with the same impact groups, in particular through an earlier phase of the TESFA project in a different geographical area funded by the Nike Foundation from 2010-2014. The J&J TESFA project complemented an ongoing Johnson & Johnson-supported WASH development initiative in the same geographical area in a selected number of kebeles, allowing CARE to share existing resources (technical capacity and tools) for cost-effective implementation and to make a collective, lasting impact on the target communities.

Ruby Cups: Girls in Imvepi Refugee Settlement Taking Control

CARE International and WoMena Uganda are currently concluding a menstrual cup (MC) pilot implementation
project in Imvepi Refugee Settlement, funded by European Union Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid (ECHO). This is the second pilot that WoMena has conducted on the use of menstrual cups (the Ruby Cup brand) with refugee women in Uganda. Based on findings from previous studies and Menstrual Health Management (MHM) projects conducted by WoMena, the project’s goal was to improve the capacity of female beneficiaries to safely and effectively manage their menstruation with a menstrual cup called “Ruby Cup”, and to improve general knowledge and perceptions around menstruation in the community. The pilot was integrated into CARE’s existing gender-based violence sector support programs in West Nile and was prompted by evidence of a strong linkage between Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM) and Gender based violence (GBV) in various CARE assessments. CARE collected information on refugee girls engaging in transactional sex to buy pads. Read More...
