arrow for change – repoliticising financing: re-energising political support for women’s health and SRHR


The road to self-reliance? Development aid, with its rapidly changing trends and cut–backs, has been a matter of extreme concern for hundreds of civil society organisations (CSO) involved in bringing social justice to vulnerable populations. The pursuit of the right to development and the role of people’s organisations in achieving this, including for sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR), deserve consistent financing and long-term support from national governments and the international development community.

However, the withdrawal from aid commitments by financial supporters of public causes, as well as growing privatisation of health care, have forced us to rethink what needs to be done.
