The project aims to improve the sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) of vulnerable and underserved women and adolescent girls in two urban slums in Dhaka, Bangladesh. In collaboration with local partners, project activities include: (1) providing training to health facility staff of 154 garment factories and clinics to provide quality contraceptive care responsive to needs of adolescents, and survivors of sexual and gender based violence; (2) facilitating social and behavior change to support women’s and adolescent girls’ needs with respect to SRHR; and (3) providing infrastructure, commodities, and technology required to provide quality woman-centered contraceptive service in the selected facilities. The project also strives to establish effective communication mechanisms to ensure adolescent girls and women have access to accurate information on the availability of contraceptive services and resources for sexual and gender based violence.
