Universal health coverage (UHC) is an integral part of economic development. In the case of sexual and reproductive health, lack of coverage can trap families and nations in poverty, costing women and girls their future and costing a nation its growth. Above all, health is a human right. IPPF advocates for the inclusion of sexual and reproductive health as a core feature of a complete, non-discriminatory health care system. Access to quality sexual and reproductive health services should never depend on where you live, how much money you have or you race, gender or age.
