Project Brief

Women and girls in urban Bangladesh face the denial of their sexual and reproductive health and rights and experience endemic spousal violence. These problems, left unaddressed, hinder empowerment of women and girls and Bangladesh’s recent progress in health and development. The SAFE programme was designed to address these problems, particularly in urban slums.
