Description and results

Description

This project, also known as the Health, Empowerment and Rights (HER) project, addresses systemic barriers to the realization of sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) and to ending sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) among vulnerable and marginalized populations in Myanmar, such as women, children, youth as well as ethnic and religious minorities. Project activities include: (1) supporting government capacity in ending SGBV, especially through informed policies, legislation and standard operating procedures; (2) empowering women, girls, boys and young people through local and national SRHR education, networking and access to information; and (3) increasing access to SRHR and SGBV services.

Expected results

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) enhanced protection and response to sexual and gender-based violence in Myanmar for women, young people, girls and boys; (2) enhanced protection and promotion of sexual and reproductive health and rights of women, young people, girls and boys in Myanmar by state and non-state actors; and (3) enhanced, equitable access in Myanmar to quality sexual and reproductive health services that are gender-responsive and adolescent-friendly.
