SEXUAL AND REPRODUCTIVE  RIGHTS and HEALTH (SRHR)                        

Year of establishment: 2016

Objectives

To uncover and highlight how social factors relating to sexualities, gender and SRHR issues interlink in affecting the prevalence of GBV in societies. In addition to find innovative means to start discussions and break the silence around these topics.

 

 

 

 

Brief Description of The Programme 

During the first quarter of 2016, ABAAD established a new department focusing on sexualities and sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) issues as essential means to holistically address social factors that contribute to GBV against women, men, girls,  boys, and persons with alternative sexualities.

The need for this novel approach became evident based on emerging needs and gaps, identified through working with communities and relevant stakeholders on gender and gender discriminations within the Lebanese and regional contexts.

Since its establishment, work focused on the subtopics of girls’ autonomy and agency, as well as combating sexual gender based violence.  

 This has been done through enhancing the clinical response to sexual assault survivors; conducting research and producing information, education and communication materials (IEC) on Early, Forced & Child marriage and SRHR; in addition to contributing to ABAAD’s overall work with behavioural change models.
