CARMMA, the Campaign on Accelerated Reduction of Maternal Mortality in Africa, is an initiative of the African Union Commission, with UNFPA support. It is aimed at lowering the unacceptably high levels of maternal and child deaths on the continent.
PreMDESA, the Preventing Maternal Deaths in East and Southern Africa programme, intends to provide robust evidence to inform successful design and implementation of sexual and reproductive health programmes - as well as support formative research in areas of innovation, demographics, and data.
Safeguard Young People Programme intends to scale up comprehensive interventions for adolescents and young people in Southern Africa through a multi-sectoral approach that touches on policy, integrated HIV and youth-friendly sexual and reproductive health  services, sexuality education for in- and out-of-school youth as well as youth empowerment.
SRHR-HIV Linkages, the Sexual and Reproductive Health and HIV Linkages project, seeks to integrate HIV services with sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services, as an important part of the global response to HIV and SRH. An integrated approach to the management of HIV and SRH makes good ‘people' sense as it benefits clients and service providers alike, and is likely to improve efficiency in service provision.
