IMAP Statement on UHC & SRHR

Achieving UHC represents an ambitious global effort which currently receives significant traction and political momentum. Although each country is at a different stage of implementation, as they take steps on the path towards UHC, new opportunities arise to advance and integrate a comprehensive approach to SRHR and essential SRH services. UHC reforms are inherently complex, but a people‑centred and a health systems approach can help to identify key areas and actions that can be taken to advance SRHR integration in UHC.

This IMAP statement highlights some of these areas and actions and, as a deeper understanding of local circumstances and the specific needs of those currently left behind are crucial, IPPF MAs are well placed to play a leading role in this process.
