Funding of approximately 1.7 million euros is being used to support a number of activities in Cambodia as part of the Muskoka Initiative: men are offered support on how to care for newborn children and then serve as role models. Women with disabilities are also to be granted easier access to sexual and reproductive health services while creative campaigns are to be used to raise the public’s awareness of women’s reproductive needs.

In Malawi, the programme for strengthening public private partnerships in order to promote reproductive health provides enough contraceptives for 180,000 couples for one year. Public education and awareness raising campaigns promote responsible family planning and increase the level of acceptance for the sexual and reproductive self-determination of women.

In cooperation with the sectoral programme entitled Promoting Gender Equality and Women’s Rights, the Reproductive and Family Health project in Guinea is compiling a study on cooperation and dialogue with religious leaders on the issues of sexual and reproductive health and rights and, in particular, on female genital mutilation and child marriage. Dialogue forums are also planned between religious authorities and male and female health experts, as is the development of materials which can be used to help prepare sermons on the topics mentioned.
