Addressing and Minimizing Inequalities in Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights

The inequalities in access to sexual and reproductive health (SRH) information and services; the widespread need to improve SRH services to meet public health, human rights and medical ethics standards for quality of care; and the absence or inadequate use of accountability mechanisms to track and remedy the other two are the major three issues of sexual and reproductive health and rights in low- and middle-income countries. In the post-2015 development agenda; the priority actions to achieve equality, quality and accountability in SRHR policies, programs and services should be included.
