A- FRF is partnering with OXFAM in a project about Sexual and Reproductive Health Rights: Youth Leadership and Advocacy 

B- Context

Youth in Lebanon are likely to face a range of health and social challenges. For instance, initiation of sexual activity while they lack adequate knowledge and skills for protection, places adolescents at a higher risk of unwanted pregnancy, unsafe abortion and sexually transmitted infections including HIV/AIDS, especially with the absence of laws and/or policies that regulate these issues. In Lebanon, topics like “sex” and “sexual and reproductive health” outside the institution of marriage are stigmatized and are considered a taboo, even for adults, whereas the stigma is even more severe when it comes to adolescents who are exploring their bodies. For many adolescents who need sexual and reproductive health services, such as appropriate information, contraception, and treatment for sexually transmitted infections (STIs), these are either not available or are provided in a way that makes youth feel embarrassed, and all of this is due to the absence of an educational system that covers this topic in schools and universities, in addition to a scarcity in safe spaces that ensure anonymity while providing services. Adolescents and youth face significant barriers that undermine their sexual and reproductive health and rights—including lack of access to comprehensive sexuality education and to essential sexual and reproductive health services. The extent to how much youth are involved in issues related to their well-being has a staggering effect on their psychological and social development, in addition to increasing their ability to make decisions.

Scope of Work:

Family Rights Forum will seek to engage youth not only in the production of a policy paper that will be promoted to be endorsed by key stakeholders, namely universities, schools whether public or private, and local and international organizations, but also in the advocacy plan, where the youth will use the policy paper as a tool to campaign and advocate for the rights of youth in their communities, and to disseminate knowledge and information on SRHR in universities, schools, and hospitals. Youth will be among the main participants in producing the paper along with academics, organizations’ representatives, and frontline health providers.

The policy paper will provide recommendations on how to enhance the knowledge on youth SRHR, remove barriers hindering its advancement, and will be a tool for the youth to advocate for an inclusive SRH system that is be endorsed by key stakeholders like the Ministry of Education and Higher Education-MEHE and the Ministry of Public Health-MoPH, and consequently schools, universities, and hospitals, in addition to youth-led organizations and organizations that target youth in their programmes. Moreover, we will establish local partnerships with a number of organizations to reach out to the targeted youth who will be trained to become advocates in their communities and to support in promoting the findings of the paper. The main activities of the project will be focused on reach out, community mobilization, partnerships, and knowledge dissemination in three rural areas: Chouf, Bekaa, and South Lebanon.
