The Diverse SOGIESC Inclusion Programming toolkit, the third toolkit in the Diverse SOGIESC inclusion series, developed in collaboration with our MAs and supported by other Secretariat members, aims to continue the work of supporting IPPF MAs with engaging and serving the LGBTIQ+ community. This Diverse SOGIESC inclusive SRHR Programming seeks to use targeted and mainstreamed approaches to include people with diverse SOGIESC, as well as efforts to transform harmful norms that have resulted in marginalisation of people with diverse SOGIESC.
This document contains three parts. Part one consists of a situational analysis of the region which seeks to explore legal and social restrictions and challenges faced by people with diverse SOGIESC. Part two includes case studies of four IPPF Member Associations (MAs) from ESEAOR Region on working towards diverse SOGIESC inclusion in restrictive settings. These four MAs have previously rolled out the Diverse SOGIESC Inclusion Self-Assessment, and these case studies serve as their learnings and progress. Part three provides guidance on diverse SOGIESC inclusive SRHR programming to support IPPF MAs with further inclusion in regard to the organisational policy framework, capacity building, programmes, services, and advocacy. This section is adaptable as a tool for inclusive SRHR programming with regard to other marginalised community.
The goal of this tool is to provide the resources necessary for IPPF MAs to reach people who are being unjustly excluded and marginalised and providing safe, quality care as well as fulfilling the SRHR needs of gender diverse and LGBTIQ+ communities, in alignment with IPPF’s New Strategic Framework 2028. This resource will continue the Federations’ support for IPPF MAs in enhancing capacities and improving services to better serve gender diverse people.
