Human Rights: The Foundation for a Comprehensive Sexual and Reproductive Health Counseling Service
|Human Rights The Foundation for a Comprehensive Sexual and Reproductive Health Counseling Service.pdf||1.21 MB|
The international human rights framework offers a number of legal tools that support the health care sector’s adoption of a policy for a comprehensive approach to sexual and reproductive health counseling and care, which would not only address maternal morbidity and mortality as a problem of public health, equality, and social exclusion of women, but also adequately ensure respect for and protection of the rights of health care providers. In collaboration with Women’s Link Worldwide, we developed this publication for health professionals and advocates to provide information about the harm reduction model to prevent unsafe abortion and its foundation in a rights-based approach.
This publication presents eight human rights that are involved in the provision of this service delivery model and explains how each right is applied individually in the implementation of the harm reduction model to prevent unsafe abortion.
