Home Courses Call for Application: National E-Course on SRHR and Young People, Bangladesh

Overview

Youth and adolescents have limited access to quality information on SRHR. The magnitude of the knowledge gap lies in poor awareness campaigns and knowledge-sharing initiatives. Side by side, SRHR education is crippled by weak policies and socio-cultural stigmata affecting the overall mindset of youth in the country.
