View knowledge product

This knowledge product aimed to investigate, compile, and disseminate the common misconceptions that youth in Jordan have about Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRH). It seeks to better inform young people about sexual reproductive health and rights (SRHR) based on Share-Net partners’ research, the experiences of service providers, and youth in Jordan. The purpose of this report is to support Share-Net International’s efforts to improve research and strengthen pedagogical frameworks related to SRHR, aligning with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to ensure the improvement of healthy lives and increased well-being for all.

To achieve the aforementioned objectives, a qualitative approach was utilized. Data was collected through interviews, focus group discussions, and desk review. The findings of this report (see below) were translated into simple language with clarifications of misconceptions, and presented in a printed brochure (see below), which was shared with service providers and practitioners for distribution to their youth beneficiaries.

King Hussien Foundation – Institute for Family Health

The Institute for Family Health (IFH) serves as a national and regional model for comprehensive and progressive healthcare that addresses the physical, mental, and social welfare of Jordanians and refugees throughout Jordan.

Launched in 1986 by the Noor Al Hussein Foundation (NHF) with support from Sweden’s Radda Barnen, the IFH model evolved from a primary healthcare center for mothers and children to a holistic community healthcare model. It contributes to the wellbeing and resilience of families and individuals throughout their lifecycle by providing integrated prevention, curative, protection, and rehabilitation services that meet the highest professional standards and human-rights principles.

The IFH model is enhanced through a structured referral system with the public and private sectors, local and international NGOs, UN agencies, and, in close partnership with over 200 community-based organizations.
