ADVOCACY ENTRY POINTS FOR SELF-CARE IN SRHR

Advance Family Planning has developed a new tool that helps identify self-care advocacy opportunities. The Advocacy Entry Points for Self-care in Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights tool is intended to help advocates identify the most strategic entry points in making progress on self-care for sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) in their countries and communities.

The tool maps opportunities along five categories—diagnostics; drugs and devices; digital health; data and evidence; and demand, empowerment, and community engagement. Each intervention category highlights examples, systemic supports needed, and advocacy opportunities to illustrate possible avenues for SRHR self-care advancement. Advocates can use an appended form to chart their own, context-specific advocacy plan.
