Event:

The importance of sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) to reach HIV fast-track goals and Universal Health Coverage for women and girls (WP1572)

Image: UNAIDS

The high level policy discussion will seek to identify strategies and policy outcomes on how investing in and strengthening SRHR interventions through multisectoral approaches for women and girls can contribute to ending the AIDS epidemic, achieving the SRHR targets in the SDGs, and accelerate progress to achieve UHC goals

Specific objectives include to:

  • review the evidence on SRH-HIV linkages since the 2004 Glion Call to Action on Family Planning and HIV/AIDS in Women and Children to inform advocacy for reaffirming the need to promote linked interventions;
  • revisit what needs to happen within the SDGs development framework, the Global Strategy on Women, Children and Adolescent health, and the Fast Track commitments to end the AIDS epidemic to facilitate stronger SRHR policies; and
  • recommit to advancing SRHR for women and girls that also explicitly strengthen health systems and financing to achieve UHC.
