IOB Study - NGOs in action: a study of activities in sexual and reproductive health and rights by Dutch NGOs

This report presents the findings of a desk-study of the work of Dutch non-governmental organisations (NGOs) in the field of sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR).

This report is part of a number of sub-studies of a policy evaluation of Dutch involvement in SRHR, conducted by the Policy and Operations Evaluation Department (IOB) of the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The contribution of NGOs was assessed by an analysis of evaluations of NGOs that are financed through the co-financing system (MFS-I), complemented by interviews. The study provides insight into the results, the success factors and bottlenecks of the NGO interventions in improving knowledge, increasing access to services and influencing policy on sexual and reproductive health and rights.
