The Passages Project

The five-year Passages project developed by the Institute of Reproductive Health at Georgetown University, FHI 360, Johns Hopkins Global Early Adolescent Study (GEAS), PSI, Save the Children and Tearfund, aims to address a broad range of social norms, at scale, to achieve sustained improvements in family planning and reproductive health. 

This research project investigates a range of gender norms relevant to sexual and reproductive health, building the evidence base. It is also contributing to the capacity of the global community to strengthen normative environments that support reproductive health, especially among very young adolescents, newly married youth, and first-time parents. Passages is being implemented at present in Burundi, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Mali, Nepal, Niger and Senegal.
