In 2012, the following are the two new initiatives being taken:
A. Sexual and reproductive health rights (SRHR) programme:
Sexual and reproductive health rights programme started from July 2012 with the consortium of six partners as Oxfam Novib, BNPS, CAMPE, FPAB, HASAB and BRAC. It is a campaign based programme funded by Oxfam Novib, which aims to contribute to the significant reduction of the number of adolescent girls suffering from avoidable maternal deaths and the prevention of other major sexual and reproductive health hazards in both adolescent girls and boys. As the acceptance of contraception in adolescent girls and boys increases, pregnancies are delayed and maternal mortality decreases.
B. Violence against women (VAW):
The violence against women project started from September 2012 in Khulna with the consortium of We Can and Steps towards Development. This capacity building project, with contribution from United Nation Trust Fund (UNTF), aims to enhance the prevention of sexual harassment in public place.
