Tackling Girls and Young Women’s Reproductive Health through a Reproductive Justice Framework

Noirin MacNamara, Claire Pierson, Fiona K. Bloomer

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report

Abstract

Funded by a Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) pump priming grant from the Department for the Economy, this project utilized the multi-disciplinary framework of Reproductive Justice to address the complex issue of reproductive health in two case study areas, South Africa and the Philippines. Team members’ disciplines include social policy, law, politics, public health, sustainable development, medicine, and psychology.
This project identified: intersecting factors hindering access to reproductive health in case study areas, produced theoretical and policy knowledge to inform a large-scale grant application and academic outputs and provided the foundation for a large-scale grant application focusing on improving the reproductive health of women and girls. Programmes will be designed from a bottom up approach in tandem with those directly affected.

This report summarises key evidence related to reproductive health globally and provides an overview of reproductive health data in each case study area. This is followed by a consideration of reproductive justice and the theoretical approach for the large-scale study.
