Our work

To increase the capacity of women and young people to exercise their sexual and reproductive rights, we work in the areas of Health, Community Access, Policy and Communication.

Health

We support health service providers in the use of new technologies, supplying equipment and medicines, and updating health personnel in order to ensure Sexual and Reproductive Health care.

Community access

Lack of information is a barrier for women and girls to exercise their Sexual and Reproductive Rights (SRHR), that is why we work in a committed way with community organizations, youth groups and society in general promoting the exercise of their SRHR.

politics

Women and girls cannot determine their future without laws and policies that support the full exercise of their Sexual and Reproductive Rights (SRHR). Thus, we provide legal technical advice with a gender and generational approach in the framework of human rights to different public entities of the State, in the design and implementation of public policies and regulations that protect their SRHR.

Communication

We elaborate communication strategies, campaigns and informative materials on prevention in the areas of contraception, unplanned pregnancies, sexual violence, legal interruption of pregnancy and new masculinities in order to strengthen sexual and reproductive rights.
