SRHR/Equity in Access and Countering Discrimination

Great strides have been made since 1994. Yet access to sexual and reproductive health and rights is still uneven throughout the world, and some groups have been systematically left behind. This session will engage individuals from these groups, bringing in marginalized voices and perspectives from young people, policymakers and providers. It will focus on proven solutions to counter discrimination, with the aim of increasing access to good quality sexual and reproductive health services. The event will be moderated by Thamsanqa Sibandze (a.k.a. Krtc), a celebrated hip-hop artist and poet from Eswatini who uses edutainment to deliver sexual and reproductive health and rights messages to young people across Southern Africa. This session will be convened by the International Federation of Medical Students’ Association and UNFPA.

Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights : An essential element of Universal Health Coverage

Health care is a matter of equity, quality, accountability and justice. Sexual and reproductive health and rights are an important part of the health and well-being of people, and thus integral to universal health coverage (UHC). Marginalized groups, including minority ethnic groups, young people, unmarried people, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex people, people with disabilities, and the rural and urban poor continue to face barriers in accessing quality care. UHC provides a renewed opportunity to uphold their rights. Highlighting new scientific evidence, this signature session will cover how far the world has come towards providing an integrated and essential package of sexual and reproductive health interventions, the remaining challenges and obstacles, and how to overcome these.

What role have sub-national and regional governments played in advancing the ICPD Programme of Action? Understanding and optimizing the relationship between global agendas and national/regional stakeholders is paramount to realizing the full implementation of the ICPD PoA. This concurrent session will offer a forum for sub-national and regional governments to exchange experiences and discuss opportunities to deliver on the ICPD promise of zero unmet need for contraception, zero preventable maternal deaths, and zero gender-based violence and harmful practices. Expect participants to make political and financial commitments that reinforce the importance of carrying out the ICPD Programme of Action at sub-national and regional levels.
