The Arab Human Rights Index – referred to as AHR - chronicles the Arab countries' progress in human rights. It offers concise information about their ratification, reservations, and reports to the international human rights committees, in a one stop access in Arabic, English and French.

Most of the reports, already available at the website of the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) are organized on AHR in ways that enable quick comparative analysis. They are organized by country, by core treaty, by human rights committee reports, and by types of available resources (such as country reporting history and shadow reports).

باختصار
تكون شبكة النسويات الشابات بمثابة شبكة إقليمية للناشطات الشابات المنفردات (١٨ سنة وحتى أوائل ٣٠) العاملات في المجتمعات العربية. وستوفر الأدوات والمهارات والمعارف التنظيمية اللازمة للناشطات الشابات للتجمع وحشد جهودهن بفاعلية أكثر لمعالجة القضايا المتعلقة بحقوق المرأة التى تعتبرنها مهمة بالنسبة إليهن.

وقد أدركنا أننا كناشطات شابات نعمل على القضايا المتعلقة بحقوق المرأة في المنطقة، نحتاج إلى أربعة أمور أساسية ألا وهي:

المساحة لاستيعاب وتعزيز الأفكار والنشاطات

المعرفة

المساحة لبناء الروابط

المساحة المتقدمة والشاملة والآمنة

وعليه، تسعى شبكتنا إلى تحقيق الأهداف التالية:

إنشاء مجموعة من الناشطات من شأنها خرق عزلة الناشطات الشابات وتوفير مساحة للعمل على مختلف قضايا المرأة.
توفير المعلومات والمعارف حول النسوية والتحليل النقدي لحركة حقوق المرأة في المجتمعات العربية.
أن نشكل منصة متقدمة لمناقشة كافة المواضيع الرائجة والمحرمة التي تؤثر على حقوق المرأة في المجتمعات العربية.
توسيع الخطاب حول حقوق المرأة في المجتمعات العربية كي يكون أكثر شمولا وتقدما وسياسيا.
We are a group of young Arab women activists building a collective network of support for young Arab activists in the region. We recognize that Arab young women face particular challenges and experiences of sexism. We also recognize the fragmentation and elitism of women's rights work in Arab societies. The group of us believes that an organized support network uniting young women activists working on an array of issues concerning women rights and coming from various perspectives and backgrounds is the perfect way to push women's rights organizing forward in the region.

The Syrian Family Planning Association (SFPA), with the technical assistance of the Italian Association for Women in Development (AIDOS), is launching the Project ”Strengthening the capacity of the Syrian Family Planning Association (SFPA) clinics to serve as health counselling centres (HCC) for women, adolescents and men: a pilot experience in the Halbouni Clinic in Damascus”. The Project is co-financed by the European Union, AIDOS and SFPA.
The Project aims at attaining higher standards of physical, psychological and social well being of women, adolescents and men, through the adoption of a holistic approach to reproductive health. This approach is based on the idea that women's well being depends on the balance of physical, psychological and emotional factors. By focusing on actual health care, prevention and education, women's state of health is considered in the perspective of their entire life cycle from the menarche until after menopause.
The Project targets mainly underprivileged women, adolescents and men living in Damascus, its suburbs and surrounding rural areas. The Project will enhance the clinical and family planning services currently provided by the SFPA clinic located in the Halbouni area.
