Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights

Improving sexual and reproductive health and rights including HI/AIDS is key to improving the health situation of people in developing and emerging countries in the long term. Expanding sexual and reproductive health services and access to these services improves the health situation of women and expectant mothers, newborn babies and children. Bolstering sexual and reproductive health lays the foundation for social and economic development by societies. (Photo: DFID-UK Department for International Development/flickr)
