Description and results


In light of persistently high levels of maternal mortality and unmet need for family planning, and prevalent harmful practices (including female genital mutilation and child marriage), the Advancing Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights in Indonesia project, in partnership with UNFPA and UNICEF, aims to transform sexual and reproductive health and rights for women and young people in Indonesia by addressing key gaps in the quality of birth attendants, access to comprehensive sexuality education and youth-friendly services for young people, and advocacy and community-based programming for the prevention of gender-based violence and harmful practices using the male involvement approach (focusing on child marriage and female genital mutilation). This initiative is directly aligned with Canada’s Feminist International Assistance Policy and supports Canada's commitment of $650M over three years to sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR)
