Sexual and reproductive health and gender-based violence in Tonga: A review of policy and legislation


The purpose of this study was to identify and analyse policies and legislation related to SRHR and GBV in Tonga. The study consisted primarily of a desk-based review, which examined national legislation, policies, peer reviewed literature, and other published reports relevant to SRHR and GBV in Tonga. Document search and retrieval occurred from July 2020 to July 2021. The second stage of the review involved a content analysis of the included documents. The analysis focused on key domains and corresponding indicators adapted from themes under SDG Indicator 5.6.2 and commitments under international frameworks and conventions (such as the 1994 International Conference on Population and Development Programme of Action), and including those relevant to priority populations outlined in the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and the Convention on the Rights of the Child.
