The Action for Choice Project

The Action for Choice (A4C) project aims to improve access to and utilisation of contraception, HIV and GBV services by students in 10 State Universities in Zimbabwe. It seeks to achieve this through harnessing the collective action of students, and strengthening their voices to make choices on SRH services that have an impact on their lives. It seeks to ensure that duty bearers craft policies and programs which are in line with students preferred choices with particular reference to choices that have been taken away from them on morality, religious and cultural grounds.
