Sexual & Reproductive Health & Rights (SRHR)
We employ a rights-based approach that emphasizes full, free, and informed choice regarding all aspects of sexuality and reproduction. This includes expanding access to information and services related to contraception, safe abortion and postabortion care, HIV and other sexually transmitted infections, cervical cancer, and more.
Across the globe, EngenderHealth’s experience has shown that in every setting, contraceptive care can be safe, effective, and affordable. EngenderHealth partners with governments, national health systems, policymakers, community organizations, and healthcare providers to: improve the safety, efficacy, and quality of family planning services; increase contraceptive options, including for long-acting reversible contraceptives and permanent methods; and ensure that clients are able to make informed choices. We also work to strengthen service delivery by integrating contraceptive care with other health services that women and their families need, including immunizations, screening and treatment for HIV and other sexually transmitted infections, cancer screening, and maternal and obstetric care.
EngenderHealth works to expand access to comprehensive abortion care, including both safe abortion and postabortion care. Our programs include support for the development of standards and guidelines, training and capacity strengthening models, and community engagement and advocacy. To date, we have worked in nearly 30 countries and trained more than 15,000 clinicians to provide comprehensive abortion care.
