Marginalized Communities

Sexual and reproductive health and rights are human rights. They are also inextricably linked to economic development, health and sustainability. 

The Human Development Index identifies low or medium levels of human development countries, to have disproportionately high levels of maternal and child mortality, unmet need for contraception, HIV prevalence, early marriage and childbearing.

Persistent inequalities are compounded by stigma and myths about HIV, abortion and sex which make key populations more alienated and the need for sexual rights more pertinent.

These marginalized communities have the greatest need for sexual and reproductive health services and include young people, sex workers, men who have sex with men, people who inject drugs, sexually diverse populations and prisoners.
