ARROW works with more than 90 partners across 16 priority countries in Asia-Pacific and is committed to championing gender equality, the sexual and reproductive health and rights of women and young people, especially with regards to access to services. It does this through advocacy, monitoring evidence generation, strategic partnerships and mobilizing communities.
Championing sexual and reproductive health and rights
ARROW is well-known in the region and globally as a leading network committed to advocacy on sexual and reproductive health and rights. Monitoring and evidence-based research for better advocacy has been instrumental to ARROW’s approach to ensuring accountability.
Following ARROW’s partnership with EM2030, the network has used and integrated the Index data and language around demand for quality gender data in key written and oral interventions at the Commission on the Status of Women, the UN Highlevel Political Forum and in regular monitoring efforts around SDG 3 (good health and well-being) and 5 (gender equality).
