The Tajik audience will watch a cycle of television programs addressing modern family planning methods, the importance of condoms in preventing sexually transmitted diseases and a medical abortion as a safer and less expensive option as compared to the traditional method. The programs will increase social awareness about growth of sexually transmitted diseases (mens migration to and from Russia greatly contribute to) and maternal deaths (due to a lack of proper medical care during pregnancy and labor and unsafe abortions).  Within the project diverse activities aiming at raising society awareness of the reproductive rights are implemented including establishment of the women friendly offices within the administrative bodies to support women in need.
