Detailed description of project Back

Under the theme ‘Good health for all’ of the Development Cooperation Instrument ‘Investing in People’, four key health issues have been identified of which one relates to sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR). The general objectives for the thematic support to SRHR are to improve reproductive and sexual health in developing countries and to secure the right of women, men and adolescents to good reproductive and sexual health and provide financial assistance and appropriate expertise with a view to promoting a holistic approach to, and the recognition of, reproductive and sexual health and rights as defined in the ICPD Programme of Action, including safe motherhood and universal access to a comprehensive range of safe and reliable reproductive and sexual health care and services, supplies, education and information (including information on all kinds of family planning methods), as well as reducing maternal mortality and morbidity rates, with particular reference to the countries and populations where these are highest.

The priority of the programme for SRHR for 2008 included a call for proposals to equip civil society organisations (CSOs) with the skills they need to influence governments and decision- makers, help bring about social change and deliver more effective SRHR programmes. Eight projects were selected and come to a close in 2012. This assignment concerns to review their success and to learn from experience with a view to the new planned call for proposals in 2013.
