Integrating Reproductive Rights into the Work of National Human Rights Institutions of the Asia Pacific Region
Abstract:
Reproduction is an elemental, life-changing common experience for much of humanity. Yet each year more than 120 million couples have an unmet need for contraception, 80 million women have unintended pregnancies (45 million of which end in abortion); more than half a million women are estimated to die from complications associated with pregnancy, childbirth and the postpartum period and 340 million people acquire new sexually transmitted infections.1 In every part of the world, women and adolescents bear the brunt of sexual and reproductive ill-health. Globally, it is women and girls in developing countries who are at most risk of reproductive related disease, disability and death.
