The SRHR service and knowledge gaps are more extensive among the gender diverse population especially the adolescent and young clusters because same gender inclination is seen as strange or alien practice and in most cases, is frowned upon and severely condemned by the mainstream society. Therefore, they do not dare to declare their gender identity socially; issue around legal recognition therefore remains at poles distance.

 Based on the contexts above, advocacy focusing the promotion of the rights of people with different gender identities, both in law and practice combined with sufficient and scaled-up sexual and reproductive health related program interventions are the necessary components for a successful response to address the SRHR needs of gender diverse population.
