  1. Consolidated guideline on sexual and reproductive health and rights of women living with HIV

  2. Assessing process, content, and politics in developing the global health sector strategy on sexually transmitted infections 2016–2021: implementation opportunities for policymakers

    Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) present significant health and economic challenges in all countries and yet are rarely prioritised for coordinated strategic attention. The 2016 World Health Assembly adopted a global health sector strategy on STIs for 2016–2021, including ambitious 2020 and 2030 goals aligned with broader sustainable development goals and targets of ending disease epidemics as public health concerns by 2030. The strategy requires actions at the country level, guided and led by governments, supported by the World Health Organization (WHO) and other partners. …

  3. The demographic dividend in Africa relies on investments in the reproductive health and rights of adolescents and youth: policy brief

    A demographic dividend can occur during a window of opportunity created by reductions in child mortality and a demographic shift to fewer dependent people relative to working-age individuals. The full realization of the sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) of adolescents and youth (ages 10 to 24) can facilitate gains in their health, well-being, and educational attainment. …

  4. Health in 2015: from MDGs, millennium development goals to SDGs, sustainable development goals

    In 2015 the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) come to the end of their term, and a post-2015 agenda, comprising 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), takes their place. This WHO report looks back 15 years at the trends and positive forces during the MDG era and assesses the main challenges that will affect health in the coming 15 years.

  5. Kenya adolescent reproductive health and development policy: Implementation assessment report

    The Adolescent Reproductive Health and Development (ARHD) Policy is a foundation for initiatives in Kenya that integrate reproductive health and development concerns for adolescents and youth into the national development process, and enhance their participation in that process. Given the increase in the number of stakeholders and programs focused on ARHD in Kenya over the last decade, and with two years before the end of the ARHD Policy timeframe, stakeholders in Kenya recognized the need to assess implementation of the policy. …

  6. Sexual and reproductive health and rights are key to global development: The case for ramping up investment

    Over the last three years, the international community of civil society advocates, policymakers, donors and multilateral agencies has devoted enormous resources to negotiate and shape a new global development agenda for adoption at the United Nations (UN) General Assembly in September 2015. This post-2015 development framework will build on the Millennium Development Goals, the current UN roadmap for tackling the world’s problems related to poverty, development and sustainability set to expire later this year. …

  7. Sexual and reproductive health and rights – a crucial agenda for the post-2015 framework

    This report provides a compelling case for why sexual and reproductive health and rights must form essential priorities in the post-2015 framework. It examines sexual and reproductive health and rights within the global context, as well as highlighting the particular advocacy challenges, wins and opportunities that regions face. …

  9. The World Bank's reproductive health action plan 2010-2015

    Reproductive health (RH) is a key facet of human development. Improved RH outcomes - lower fertility rates, improved pregnancy outcomes, and lower sexually transmitted infections (STIs) - have broader individual, family, and societal benefits, including a healthier and more productive work force; greater financial and other resources for each child in smaller families; and as a means for enabling young women to delay childbearing until they have achieved educational and other goals. …

  10. Sexuality: a missing dimension in development

    Sexuality is of fundamental importance in the lives of all humans. Although sexuality is a natural part of human life it is often neglected and mainly dealt with in relation to reproduction, disease, violence and oppression. Sexuality related issues are often fraught with unease, shame and conflict, due to cultural, religious, political, social, economic, and other factors outside the control of individuals, particularly those who have less power in societies. …
