The “Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights in Mindanao” report provides insights into the social norms and other factors that prevent access and use of sexual reproductive health and rights or #SRHR information and services by women and girls. The research aims to inform two projects led by Oxfam Pilipinas and its partners: Creating Spaces and Sexual Health and Empowerment, with financial support from the Government of Canada through Global Affairs Canada.  These projects aim to prevent child, early, and forced marriage and violence against women and girls; as well as to promote SRHR by transforming discriminatory social norms in to positive ones.
