Colombo (News 1st): The Government of Japan and the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) in Sri Lanka signed an agreement, granting USD 1.4 million for improving access to information and services on sexual and reproductive health for women and girls in Sri Lanka.

The three-year programme includes access to services for survivors of gender-based violence, which is crucial for women and girls to fully realize and exercise their sexual and reproductive health and rights.

The programme will support the Ministry of Health, Nutrition and Indigenous Medicine, the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Women and Child Affairs and Dry Zone Development.

The project will further strive to increase accessibility and empower women and girls facing sexual and gender-based violence to seek support without fear of stigma or discrimination.
