SRHR programming can be transformational when the agency, autonomy, and choice of women and people of diverse sexual orientations and gender identities and expressions are prioritized, including through monitoring, evaluation and learning (MEL).

Drawing on Oxfam Canada’s experience developing and applying mixed-method approaches to MEL rooted in feminist evaluation principles, this paper explores the value of applying a feminist MEL approach to SRHR programs.
