Defining Sexual Health & Rights
For girls and women to reach their greatest potential, they must have full access to their sexual and reproductive health and rights. This is fundamental to gender equality.
When girls and women have the right to control their own bodies, sexuality, and fertility, it increases their ability to live happier, healthier, and more fulfilling lives.
But to make this a reality, we must invest in cross-cutting solutions that address the diverse barriers girls and women face – for example laws, social stigma, and access to comprehensive sexuality education and health services, including contraception and safe abortion.   
This month, Deliver for Good Partners and Allies bring you stories and solutions to more effectively respect, protect, and fulfill girls’ and women’s sexual and reproductive health and rights.
Join the Deliver for Good Campaign and put girls and women at the center of sustainable development.
