Influencing Body Politics: Women and girls in charge of their own sexual and reproductive health to fulfil their potential in society.

View knowledge product

This project aimed to sustain and connect existing Oxfam Novib country and regional SRHR programs and projects, linking national and regional SRHR influencing efforts through the process of joint program development. Within the joint program development process, there was a recognized need to strengthen the capacity of national partners in designing Theories of Change, particularly in the area of influencing. The idea was to implement gender power analyses in several countries and test assumptions with the aim of informing and strengthening existing national SRHR lobby and advocacy initiatives from a women’s rights perspective.

The resulting knowledge product is a narrative report on the overall project, its process, and the results.
