The project aims to address barriers faced by women, adolescent girls and girls in achieving their optimal level of sexual and reproductive health, and asserting their sexual and reproductive rights in selected districts of Bangladesh, El Salvador, the Philippines and Sudan. The project works to improve sexual and reproductive health and rights through advocacy, as central to a human rights approach. Project activities include: (1) advocating to government at local, state or national levels, as well as to non-governmental decision-makers, in order for them to enact policy or legislative change and to implement these changes; (2) delivering sexual and reproductive health and rights services paired with advocacy; and (3) increasing awareness of sexual and reproductive health and rights, including the right to be free from sexual and gender-based violence, within communities, schools, and in public awareness campaigns to promote national dialogue on the barriers to those rights and the need for change. The project targets an estimated 25,000 direct beneficiaries comprised of 19,234 women and 5,766 men.

Expected results 

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) improved provision of gender-responsive and adolescent-friendly comprehensive sexuality education, and sexual and reproductive health services in targeted communities; (2) improved response to sexual and gender-based violence, including early and forced marriage in targeted communities; and (3) increased government and civil society responsiveness to the sexual and reproductive health rights of women and adolescent girls.

Results achieved 

Results achieved as of March 2023 include: (1) in the Philippines, 15,017 adolescents received sexual reproductive health and rights services such as family planning, maternal and newborn care, post-abortion care and sexually transmitted infection screening; (2) in Bangladesh, 51,753 women and girls accessed sexual and reproductive health and rights services, including modern contraceptive methods; (3) in El Salvador, the partner collaborated with the Midwives’ Association in the municipality of Suchitoto to provide sexual and reproductive health and rights services delivery to 5,329 women and girls; and (4) in Sudan, a team of lawyers and psychosocial counsellors provided legal aid services to 1,260 women victims of violence.
