Our Healthcare Initiatives

RURAL SRHR  EDUCATIONAL INITIATIVE

Youth For Women Foundation has been one of the very few institution in Iraq to advocate and lead SRHR initiaves and products for hundreds of rural women and girls. We have led a community-level educational initiative on sexual reproductive health rights, and have reached more than 20+ rural communities in the country with educating 500+ refugee and rural youth and women on their sexual health and reproductive rights and provided them with comprehensive peiod products and contraceptive services, empowered by partnerships with multiple leading national civil society instituitions. We have also initiated a similar community level project among the rural population of India and has educated more than 200+ women and adolescents on SRHR, GBV, and provided them with comprehensive SRHR services.

NATIONAL FAMILY PLANNING AND SRHR ADVOCACY

Youth For Women Foundation has been mobilzing local stakeholders in the countries that we are working on (currently; Iraq, India, and some Middle Eastern territories) to advocate and urge goverment officials to legislate concrete healthcare and SRHR policies that uphold their commitments to the health and rights of rural women and girls to include SRHR in the school curriculum and prioritize SRHR in Health Ministeries' budget planning by mobilizing and empoweing the civil society especially for marginalized communities.

GLOBAL FAMILY PLANNING AND SRHR ADVOCACY

“Me and my family have never heard of sexual health and rights before due to the dominant stigma in my community. But now after this training (Rural SRHR Educational Initiative) I realized that many of our families have been exposed to Female Genital Mutation while  being deprived of basic family planning services for our entire lives”
