The ASK programme

The Access, Services and Knowledge (ASK): what young people want, what young people need programme, targets young people in the age group 10-24 years, including underserved groups, with a specific focus on uptake of Sexual Reproductive Health (SRH) services. The programme will be implemented in 7 Development Assistance Committee (DAC) countries: Kenya, Uganda, Ethiopia, Ghana, Senegal, Pakistan and Indonesia from January 2013 to December 2015.

The ASK programme is a joint effort of 7 organisations, Rutgers WPF, Simavi, AMREF Flying Doctors, CHOICE for Youth and Sexuality, dance4life, Stop AIDS Now! and the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF), based in the Netherlands and the UK (IPPF). Child Helpline International (CHI) is engaged in the programme as a technical partner.

The ASK programme is funded by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs from the SRHR Fund. The SRHR Fund was established in 2012 with the aim to address elements of the Dutch SRHR policy framework that are not yet sufficiently addressed through other funding mechanisms, such as the co-financing system (MFS2). (E.g. the Unite for Bodyrights programme of the SRHR Alliance is funded from MFS2).

The SRHR Fund focuses on the following areas:

  • Integrated approach of SRHR and HIV/AIDS
  • Sexual and reproductive rights of adolescents and youngsters
  • Access to sexual and reproductive health commodities in close linkage with access, demand and quality of services

The SRHR Fund specifically grants programmes that are implemented by Alliances and in which all focus areas are being addressed interdependently.


Young people are at risk for poor SRH outcomes in all countries where the programme will be implemented. Young people
