A new global campaign launched by the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) today is throwing down the gauntlet to world leaders to support people’s basic sexual and reproductive rights – so people can decide what happens to their bodies, who they live with and whether or not they become pregnant.
The I decide campaign will have more than 50 IPPF Member Associations holding events across the world to highlight the situation of people who are not able to make decisions about their own lives due to stigma, discrimination or abuse.
IPPF is delighted to see that sexual and reproductive health and gender equality were supported by the High level Panel through its consultation on the post-2015 agenda in Liberia last week.
The declaration issued by the High Level Panel of world leaders on the Post-2015 development agenda in Monrovia, Liberia on 1 February 2013 shows just how far the sexual and reproductive movement has come. It demonstrates that sexual and reproductive health rights (SRHR) is part of the global effort to tackle poverty and the protection of women’s rights.
