Sexual and Reproductive Health/Gender-Based Violence
CPI works to educate and empower individuals to access sexual and reproductive health services and to support their right to make individual choices. This encompasses physical, social and mental well-being. Through community partnerships, we ensure that people have access to the information, services and safe, effective and affordable contraception they need.
Our activities are particularly focused on women, girls, adolescents and groups at high risk from sexually transmitted infections. A large component of our sexual & reproductive health work supports survivors of gender-based violence to access specialized health care services to support their recovery.
