Commitment title:

Investing in Health, Rights and Choices for All

Commitment description:

Together with our international partners, we will accelerate our efforts to finish what we started in Cairo 25 years ago. The Programme of Action continues to guide us in developing smart and responsible policies that place the needs and wellbeing of individuals at the heart of sustainable development. Respect for human rights and the achievement of gender equality are central to peaceful, inclusive and prosperous societies. For with rights and choices come opportunities to lead a self-determined life. This is why we stand ready to support:

A world where every young person can seize the opportunity to make the most of their potential.

A world where everyone’s sexual and reproductive rights and choices are respected and realised.

So that every woman and girl may live without fear of violence, coercion or discrimination on any grounds. In a setting where she is empowered and has equal choices to lead the life she desires.

So that every person may have access to sexual and reproductive health services – including for family planning and for information – that safeguard users’ dignity and freedom of choice and that are of adequate quality.

To these ends, Germany will work together with its partners at home and abroad. Our goal is for every pregnancy to be wanted and every birth to be safe.
