Reproductive Health

South Asia

Improving quality reproductive health information and services

In South Asia, women and girls from marginalized communities bear the greatest burden of poor sexual and reproductive health due to their disadvantaged social, educational, and economic status. Without quality sexual and reproductive health information and services, a significant proportion of girls are forced into early marriages and early childbearing. The effects of these problems on young women and girls in South Asia is devastating.

This subprogram seeks to:

  • Ensure that women and young people receive quality contraceptive and reproductive health services
  • Expand comprehensive sexuality education in schools and communities
  • Ensure that women receive quality abortion care in private and government settings
  • Build local and regional movements to increase political will, improve policies, and mobilize funding to support reproductive health and rights

Priority Geographies:

  • India: Bihar, with targeted investments in Uttar Pradesh
  • Targeted investments in Myanmar
  • Regional initiatives
