Description :

Huge gaps in access to basic sexual and reproductive health services, pose serious challenges to achieving universal health coverage (UHC) by 2030. These gaps in access are heightened by reduced financing for international development and highlight the importance and urgency of strengthening linkages between HIV and sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) programmes. This article highlights three key strategies to address these gaps, including: engaging, empowering, and building individual, community, and collective capacities among women and girls; securing accountable leadership, governance, and financing from governments and international agencies; and coordination of coherent actions within and across sectors.
