Sexual & Reproductive Health & Rights

Sexual and reproductive health refer to a person’s physical, emotional, mental and social well-being in relation to all aspects of sexuality and reproduction, not merely the absence of disease, dysfunction, or infirmity. A positive approach to sexuality and reproduction should recognise the part played by pleasurable sexual relationships, trust, and communication in promoting self-esteem and overall well-being.

 

Sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) refers to everyone’s right to have full control over their body, sexuality, health and relationships. People have the right to make free and informed decisions about all things related to their sexuality and reproduction without any form of discrimination, coercion, violence and other rights violations (including threats thereof).
