BISR conducted a study on Adolescent Sexual and Reproductive Health Rights in three districts of Bangladesh. The study also evaluated the impact of an NGO implemented project on sexual and reproductive health rights of young people of the project areas.
The findings of the study showed that the NGO project was able to bring significant changes in the perception and attitude of young and community people towards the SRHR. The study significantly revealed that the access to the SRHR related information and services is still limited in most of the parts of Bangladesh. In addition to that, the limited scope of the quality services, service facilities, and the socio-cultural barriers are one of the major challenges in this regard.
The study found that the engagement of the members of civil society in the project was a significant initiative of the project. The teachers and other Civil Society Organizations’ members were found active to work together to enable the environment for youth to access to SRHR.
