Sex and Reproductive Health
SEX AND REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH
RAIN UGANDA believes that access to quality sexual and reproductive health is both a fundamental human right and a critical development issue. Sex and Reproductive Health Right (SRHR) is a vital component of RAIN UGANDA's work to reduce poverty and social injustice. Improvements in SRHR are linked to economic and social development and must be addressed to achieve sustainable reductions in poverty. But the realization of the “right to health” cannot be achieved through direct services alone – large-scale and sustainable change requires that we address underlying and systemic factors, including gender inequality, policy barriers, and power imbalances that have an impact on health.
In every sub county and district we have worked, RAIN UGANDA generates and builds evidence through our programs, measures impact, shares learning, advocates for stronger SRHR policies, and encourage scale-up and replication of successful approaches to increase national impact. We believe that all women, men, and young people should have equitable access to the information and services they need to realize their rights and attain the highest possible standard of sexual and reproductive health – free of discrimination, stigma, coercion, and violence.
