The report presents an expanded and evidenced-based comprehensive definition of sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR), and recommends an all-inclusive package of essential SRH services and information that should be available to everyone.
The International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) and Rutgers are leading the coordination of the first-ever pre-conference focussed on sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) ahead of the 22nd International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2018) in Amsterdam this year.
Comprehensive sexuality education (CSE) is an essential component in promoting SRHR, and in December, members of the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) came together from all over the world to discuss best practises. There were two major outcomes from the conference: An exchange and discussion of best practises on CSE and a joint statement from IPPF to the UNFPA conference hosted by the Government of Norway just after the IPPF conference.
IPPF welcomes the new International Technical Guidance on Sexuality Education, which was published last week by UNESCO in collaboration with UNAIDS, United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), UN Women, and the World Health Organization (WHO).
The International Planned Parenthood Federation has elected a new President to lead its Governing Council as well as a honorary treasurer. Rana Abu Ghazaleh was elected as the new President and John Tangi as IPPF’s new Honorary Treasurer, at the Council’s biannual meeting in London.
