    marginalized population groups of society

    populations

    assess needs, specifically sexual and
    reproductive health needs

  • disadvantaged adolescents and youth
  • women survivors/victims of violence and abuse
  • out-of-school youth
  • women living with HIV
  • women engaged in sex work

    of women and adolescent girls, particularly their
    reproductive rights, integrated in national
    policies, development frameworks and laws.
  • Outcome 3 Human rights protection systems
    (including national human rights councils,
    ombudspersons, and conflict-resolution
    mechanisms) and participatory mechanisms are

    of women and adolescent girls, including the
    right to be free from violence.
