Universal Access to Sexual and Reproductive Health: Realizing Health and Human Rights

How can people’s sexual and reproductive health rights (SRHRs) around the world be better protected and promoted? A human rights-based approach to development means that national policies must be designed in a way that protects individuals’ dignity, autonomy and right to choose which family planning methods are best for them. Panellists at this event will discuss challenges and good practices in ensuring full access to SRHRs, and will consider what current global trends mean for implementation of the SDGs (and their achievement by 2030).

But are we facing a poverty of politics, especially in the current political climate, which might prevent such transformative policies from being designed, implemented and sustained?
