Overprotected and Underserved – Indonesia
Maurice Dunaiski, Kara Apland, Elizabeth Yarrow and Jorun Arndt
In 2016, Coram International completed a study on the influence of the law on young people’s access to sexual and reproductive health services in Indonesia. This study is part of a larger multi-country project for the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) and UNFPA in South and South East Asia, with on-going studies in the Philippines, Malaysia and Nepal. The Indonesia study explores legal and policy barriers to young people’s access to sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services, using qualitative and quantitative methods, and provides recommendations for legal and policy reform. The study followed a previous multi-country study for IPPF carried out in five case study countries: El Salvador, Senegal, England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
