Interlinking policy, politics and women`s reproductive rights


INTERLINKING POLICY, POLITICS AND WOMEN'S REPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS
A study of health sector reform, maternal mortality and abortion in selected countries of the South


Coordinated by Sonia Correa
November 2006

A diverse range of observers would agree that one major feature of the present global environment is the expansion of conservative forces and trends evident in a whole range of spheres: social issues, politics, economics and, last but not least, culture and religion Gender equality and the contents of the sexual and reproductive health agenda adopted at U.N conferences in the 1990s, in particular those aspects dealing with abortion and sexual rights, have become prime targets of the contemporary conservative agenda

The final outcome of this global research effort combines both this global report and a series of country case study publications –Argentina, Bolivia, Ghana, Mexico, Nigeria, the Philippines and Uruguay– a Joint Report on the four Caribbean countries studied and a paper focusing specifically on the question of the legalization of abortion in Brazil.
