Reproductive Health & Health Care

The Umbrella of Hope Foundation is an emerging global leader in the health of very young adolescents, youths and women. Through our Reproductive Health, health care programs and participatory based research, The Umbrella of Hope is contributing to improved health of Children, and sexual and reproductive health (SRH) for adolescents, youths and women.

Almost invisible from global health programs, we focus on these age groups through the following strategies: ensuring access to comprehensive sexuality education, strengthening menstrual hygiene management, delaying early marriage, improving access to health services, strengthening protective factors, such as communication with parents, and supporting the formation of positive gender norms. This compilation of program strategies fills a critical information and service gap and equips younger adolescents, youths and women with the ability to navigate the challenges and opportunities during their transition through puberty and adulthood.
