Sexual and reproductive health and rights or SRHR

Sexual and reproductive health and rights or SRHR is the concept of human rights applied to sexuality and reproduction. It is a combination of four fields that in some contexts are more or less distinct from each other, but less so or not at all in other contexts. These four fields are sexual healthsexual rightsreproductive health and reproductive rights. In the concept of SRHR, these four fields are treated as separate but inherently intertwined.[1]

Distinctions between these four fields are not always made. Sexual health and reproductive health are sometimes treated as synonymous to each other, as are sexual rights and reproductive rights. In some cases, sexual rights are included in the term sexual health, or vice versa.[2] Not only do different non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and governments organisations[citation needed] use different terminologies, but different terminologies are often used within the same organization.

Some of the notable global NGOs that fight for sexual and reproductive health and rights include IPPF (International Planned Parenthood Federation), ILGA (International Lesbian and Gay Alliance), WAS (World Association for Sexual Health – formerly known as World Association for Sexology), the Center for Health and Gender Equity, and International HIV/AIDS Alliance.[3][4]
