To achieve gender equality our programmes are all designed and implemented through a gender transformative approach that addresses the structural barriers to gender equality at different levels. We work within systems using the Sustainable Development Goal 5 as the bare minimum for what needs to change, and push a feminist agenda.
Gender Transformative SRHR systems ensure that the continuum of needs and services meet the realities of all women’s lives. Growing attention on SRHR, including meeting Millennium Development Goal (MDG) targets, have resulted in a skewed focus on reproductive health. The reduction in maternal mortality is welcomed but it is not sufficient to ensure girls, adolescents and women realise their sexual and reproductive rights.
