Droit en Santé Sexuel et Reproductive—Ado & Jeunes

Nearly 30% of women in the DRC have experienced sexual violence. We are working to change that. Pathfinder joins local partners in Kinshasa to address sexual and gender-based violence against young women and uphold their sexual and reproductive rights.

Project Date: 2014 - present
Funder: The David and Lucile Packard Foundation

What We Do

  • Build a strong local response to sexual violence & gender-based violence so survivors get the help they need without delay
  • Train and coach service providers to deliver the high-quality services young people need, including lifesaving postabortion care, contraception, and HIV testing and treatment
  • Mobilize communities to transform harmful gender norms that make young women vulnerable to violence, unsafe sex, unwanted pregnancy, and unsafe abortion
  • Make sure survivors of sexual and gender-based violence are provided with legal support
  • Call on policymakers to introduce and expand policies that protect young people’s sexual and reproductive rights
