  1. Our Talks: Supporting parent-child communication on sexual and reproductive health and rights

    Our Talks takes a research-informed approach to parent-child communication and sexual reproductive health and rights education as outlined in the section above. It is designed to support families as they increase their dialogue about SRHR through sessions both separately and together. This framework allows for the adolescents and the parents/guardians to think and ask questions about their own concerns related to SRHR while also spending time together connecting on topics that can be difficult to bring up.

  2. Ensure universal access to sexual and reproductive health and reproductive rights: Measuring SDG target 5.6

    The Sustainable Development Goals mark tremendous progress in addressing women’s sexual and reproductive health and reproductive rights. For the first time, an international development framework includes not only targets on services (Targets 3.1 and 3.7), but also targets that address the barriers and human rightsbased dimensions (Target 5.6).

  7. Scaling-up normative change interventions for adolescent and youth reproductive health: an examination of the evidence

    Adolescent and youth reproductive health (AYRH) outcomes are influenced by factors beyond individual control. Increasingly, interventions are seeking to influence community-level normative change to support healthy AYRH behaviors. While evidence is growing of the effectiveness of AYRH interventions that include normative change components, understanding on how to achieve scale-up and wider impact of these programs remains limited. …
