EUPHA Statement on sexual and reproductive health rights

Today EUPHA launches the statement on sexual and reproductive health and rights.

It was last week that the European Parliament adopted a resolution on the first anniversary of the de facto abortion ban in Poland, which condemns Poland’s restrictive law on abortion. Sexual and reproductive health and rights are not limited to one setting, one country, one time, rather are an important public health issue across European and beyond. In the statement EUPHA does six calls to action to governments in Europe and beyond.

This statement was written in collaboration with the EUPHA Working group on gender equality and Women Empowerment.
