If not now, when? Our health, our rights, our choices!

Ending inequalities by realising sexual and reproductive health and rights for all

High-level panel - Auditorium
Tuesday, June 18, 2019
16:00 to 17:30

Twenty-five years ago, the Programme of Action of the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) affirmed that closing disparities for women and girls in income, education, employment and other areas will largely depend on enabling them to realise their reproductive rights. Tackling inequalities, especially related to gender and sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR), are a pre-condition to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. Where are we? How are inequalities in SRHR interlinked with gender, economic and other inequalities? This session will explore actions to fully realise sexual and reproductive rights and choice for all and why fulfilling the objectives of the ICPD Programme of Action is key to achieving the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
