Situation Assessment of IPPF South Asia Member Association and Regional Team

This Situation Assessment was undertaken by the South Asia Region Office of the International Planned Parenthood Federation in order to assess the status of programs in the nine Member Associations (MAs) of the region with regard to inclusion of people with diverse Sexual Orientations, Gender Identities and Expressions, and Sex Characteristics (SOGIESC).

Qualitative method was adopted for this study and data was collected in three tiers-- MA staff members from the Senior Management Teams, staff members who deliver services to people with diverse SOGIESC, and people with diverse SOGIESC from across the region were interviewed.

Meaningful participation of people with diverse SOGIESC in MA programs, and the provision of SRHR services that cater to specific needs of people with diverse SOGIESC were identified as two key components of diverse SOGIESC inclusive SRHR programming.
