In response to the request from the President of the General Assembly (PGA) for contributions to the High-Level Event on the role of women, the young and civil society, the SRI prepared a submission focusing on women and young peoples’ sexual and reproductive rights. The submission calls for the Post-2015 development framework to integrate a human rights-based approach. Specifically, the submission calls for greater respect, protection and fulfilment of women and young peoples’ sexual and reproductive rights through guaranteed access to a comprehensive and integrated package of sexual and reproductive health information and services, including young people’s access to comprehensive sexuality education.
