Description and results

Description

This project aims to empower Colombian girls, boys and young women to exercise their sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) to help reduce sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) and early pregnancies. The project works in schools with 7,000 girls and boys in eight municipalities, also reaching 6,000 parents and community members. Project activities include: (1) increasing the leadership of boys and girls within their communities; (2) improving access to SRHR information; (3) promoting positive transformations in attitudes and behaviours around SRHR; (4) building capacity within schools to implement successful comprehensive sexuality education; and (5) giving technical assistance to government officials and health providers to improve their delivery capacity in SRHR, with youth-friendly and gender-sensitive services.

Expected results

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) improved attitudes and practices of girls, boys and adolescents related to gender equality, sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR), sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV), and early unions in eight municipalities of Colombia; (2) increased decision-making power to exercise and demand sexual and reproductive rights by girls and young women in eight municipalities of Colombia; and (3) improved provision and access to right-based, gender-sensitive and youth-friendly SRHR services in eight municipalities of Colombia
