Call for Action to Integrate SRHR to Post 2015_Cambodia-1

Cambodia has an obligation under the UN Convention on the Elimination of all forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) to provide education to girls and women about reproductive health rights, and to ensure that all girls and women receive adequate services related to their reproductive health needs.

This is a call to the Royal Government of Cambodia to establish a globally adopted health indicators and monitoring framework for the post-2015 development agenda to be integrated into the national strategic development plan for the post-2015 period. All schools must integrate into their core curricula Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) to enable informed choices among young people with regards to their sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR). Comprehensive Sexual and Reproductive Health Services (SRH) provision needs to be strengthened. Public funding for health must be increased to reduce out of pocket expenses and thereby ensure affordable, high-quality health care and accessible health services, including sexual and reproductive health services to all people.
