Description


SHE seeks to empower women and girls to secure their sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) in six disadvantaged and conflict-affected regions of the Philippines. It will improve knowledge and awareness of sexual reproductive health and rights, particularly among women and girls, including the prevention of gender-based violence (GBV); strengthen health systems and community structures to deliver rights-based comprehensive SRH information and services; and improve the effectiveness and capacity of women’s rights organizations (WROs) and women’s movements to advance SRHR and prevent GBV. SHE will directly benefit approximately 85,000 men and women in 6 regions (Bicol, Eastern Visayas, Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao (ARMM), Zamboanga Peninsula, Northern Mindanao, Caraga. It will indirectly benefit 270,000 people in 13 provinces including some geographically isolated and disadvantaged Areas.

Results & Indicators


Expected Results


The expected results at outcome level include:
1) Enhanced utilization of gender-sensitive sexual and reproductive health information and services (public and private) by women of reproductive ages, adolescent girls and boys; and
2) Improved effectiveness of women’s rights organizations to advance rights related to sexual and reproductive health and prevention of gender-based violence.
SHE will ensure that women and girls are at the forefront of this initiative, by strengthening the capacity of their organizations to advocate and influence on SRHR; and by empowering women and girls to claim their rights, to choose their sexual and reproductive health options, and to live free from violence so they can lead healthy and productive lives.
