The Our Bodies Ourselves Global Initiative (OBOGI) delivers evidence-based, culturally appropriate information on health, sexuality and reproduction to girls and women all over the world.
OBOGI collaborates with women’s organizations (see map above) that request permission and technical support to translate and adapt “Our Bodies, Ourselves” for public education and political action in their country. Most of these adaptations are published in book form. Some groups produce online content and mobile apps, while others convert health content into posters and other formats that can be shared easily in public spaces.
Through their publications and outreach, OBOS’s Global Network partners reach millions of people with information on sexual and reproductive health and human rights, as well as the skills to translate this information into action. They also engage powerbrokers — from men and family matriarchs, to religious leaders and government policymakers — to improve health services and health outcomes.
