The ICPD High-Level Task Force makes the case that the empowerment of women and girls and gender equality, the human rights and empowerment of adolescents and youth, as well as sexual and reproductive health and rights, should be reflected in the post-2015 agenda as core elements of development objectives. The ICPD argues that enabling the realization of sexual and reproductive health and rights is not only an ethical and human rights imperative in its own right, but also crucial to all other aspects of health and well-being and a prerequisite for achieving gender equality, educational, economic, and sustainable development objectives.
