Half of the population in Georgia lives on less than 2 dollars a day, and access to sexual and reproductive health is limited.

Nonetheless, abortion is legal and Georgia was the first country in the South Caucasus to decriminalize homosexuality. But the Orthodox Church has a strong influence over society, and discrimination against LGBTQ people is widespread and access to sexuality education is very limited.

RFSU works with eight organisations in Georgia.

Centre for Counselling on Reproductive Health, Tanadgoma

works with various parameters and aspects of SRHR. These include working for sexuality education in schools, advocating for LGBT rights, supporting and advocating for people living with HIV (PLWHIV). Tanadgoma has offices in five major regions, covering almost all parts of the country.
