The lack of access to sexual and reproductive health (SRH) care is exacerbated by multiple crises and emergencies that the Philippines faces such as the public health crisis due to the COVID-19 pandemic, natural disasters such as the recent Typhoon Odette (Rai), climate crisis, and other crises brought by the lack of commitment to and fulfilment of human rights obligations.
This shadow report by the Family Planning Organization of the Philippines (FPOP) attempts to highlight the gaps and challenges in SRH care and offers recommendations to improve the SRHR of all Filipinos. The report also aims to highlight the centrality of SRHR within the Sustainable Development Goals at the United Nation's High Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development. The report provides input into the 2030 Agenda discussion and aim to influence the Philippines Government to address the lack of access to sexual and reproductive health (SRH) in the Philippines.
