Asia Regional Profile on Universal Access to SRHR

October 26, 2016

This regional profile is an effort to highlight indicators related to sexual and reproductive health (SRH) and sexual and reproductive rights (SRR) across 15 countries in the region: Bangladesh, Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Maldives, Mongolia, Nepal, Pakistan, the Philippines, Sri Lanka, Thailand, and Vietnam. ARROW has come together with partners in these countries to promote #SRHR4ALL, as part of a project funded by the European Union.

This report, authored by Arpita Das, highlights the significance of addressing the gaps in the SRHR agenda in the 2030 Agenda world, where many countries remain far from achieving the goals that they had initially set out during ICPD as well as the Beijing Platform for Action.

It also highlights the moral imperative that all state governments reassess and recognise the status and the contexts in which marginalised communities, including women and young people, still remain deprived of their rights.
