Panel discussion:

Sexual Reproductive Health & Rights

What is “Sexual Reproductive Health & Rights”?
The rights to freedom over sexual activity and reproduction, in particular with reference to sexual orientation and access to contraception and healthcare.

Investing in Sexual Reproductive Health & Rights has direct medical benefits of preventing unwanted pregnancy, improving maternal health and preventing, diagnosing and treating sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV/AIDS, these are more well known.

But SRHR also has economic and social benefits that are slightly less popular. By organizing “Young Professionals Discussions” Young Professionals Cafe aims to give a holistic view on this topic while also zooming in on what the economic and social benefits could mean for the population development of our country.
