bangladesh call for action to integrate srhr into the post-2015

Bangladesh-1

Through the ratification of several international treaties, such as the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) and the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC), endorsement of the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) Programme of Action, and the Beijing Platform for Action (BPFA) and commitment to the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), Bangladesh has declared her commitment to the promotion of gender equality and non-discrimination, the advancement of reproductive health and rights, and addressing gender-based violence and enhancing accountability.

However, much remains to be done to achieve sexual and reproductive health for all.

Bangladesh has a long way to go with regards to the recognition of sexual & reproductive rights as human rights. Women’s sexual and reproductive health is invariably linked to multiple human rights, including the right to life, the right to be free from torture, freedom of choice, the right to health, the right to privacy, the right to education, and the prohibition of discrimination etc.
