The Unite for Body Rights (UFBR) program is carried out by the Sexual and Reproductive Rights (SRHR) Alliance. The UFBR program is executed in nine countries: Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Tanzania, Uganda, Bangladesh, India, Indonesia and Pakistan.
The UFBR program aims to improve the quality and reach of sexual and reproductive health education programs, improve access and quality of (SRH) health provision for youth and maternal health, and increase the acceptance of sexual rights, including the reduction of sexual violence against women and increasing the acceptance of different sexual orientation. The target groups are young people, women, and marginalized groups.
The India programme targets women in the age range of 15-49 years and focuses on issues of reproductive health and safe motherhood; and reaches out to the youth in the age range of 10-24 years towards increasing awareness on SRHR to be able to make informed and safe choices. Marginalized groups, such as migrants, tribal population and socially disadvantaged caste groups form the primary clientele of the program.
The UFBR program strategy is based on a theory of change through a multicomponent approach with the following elements:
As the largest and most energetic population, young people can and must be part of the solution. With our guidance and support, young people can become educators, facilitators and policy makers of today. Not Tomorrow.
Girls need access to education. The longer a girl stays in school, the less likely the chance that she will be married off at a young age.
