Yes! The European Union (EU) has launched a proposal for Promoting the Universal Reproductive Sexual Health and Rights of Vulnerable Adolescents in Africa.
The focus of the call is on strengthening public and community health systems to better respond to the needs of these groups, including planning and provision of sexuality education and SRHR information and services, and on enabling the environment for the sustainable financing and effective delivery of these services as well as for the protection of adolescents’ sexual and reproductive rights.
The EU’s ongoing commitment to playing a leading role in improving women’s and girls’ empowerment and upholding Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) is acknowledged in the new European Consensus on Development, the EU Gender Action Plan 2 (GAP II ) and a range of ongoing initiatives and programmes.
The EU remains committed to the promotion, protection and fulfilment of all human rights and the full and effective implementation of the Programme of Action (PoA) of the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) and the Beijing Platform for Action.
The global objective of this call for proposals is to contribute to countries reaching universal coverage for Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) of adolescents in Africa, especially adolescent girls and other vulnerable adolescents. Read More
