Policy Briefs

There are two documents, both dealing with issues related to Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR), especially from a health perspective:
– a longer background paper (115 pages), with detailed references, definitions and discussion e.g. of different sources of data and research priorities
– a shorter policy brief (7 pages) which summarises the information, referring to the background document for greater detail

The two documents are a joint effort by the SRHR Working Group with members from 5 Danish universities teaching SRHR, as well as Danida, UN organizations (e.g. UNFPA) and NGOs (e.g. WoMena, Sex & Samfund).
The documents are being used for teaching/research purposes at the universities involved, as briefing for staff at the organizations involved, as well as in advocacy.
