How to Best Apply a Human Rights-based Approach to Sexual and Reproductive Health

How to Best Apply a Human Rights-based Approach to Sexual and Reproductive Health

Berne, 22 November 2016 / 25 January 2017. "In recent years we have seen a renewed global commitment to a human rights-based approach to development and, particularly to the universal realization of sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR). There is a compelling level of evidence that the human rights-based approach has contributed to health gains of women and children.

Medicus Mundi Switzerland conducted a study to explore the experiences of MMS network members in operationalizing the human rights-based approach in the field of sexual and reproductive health.

The results showed that there are some knowledge and implementation gaps on how best to apply the human rights principles of partnership, participation and inclusion, empowerment/ capacity development and accountability/ transparency in the project management cycle of Swiss NGOs.

This workshop aims at closing these gaps by providing our network members with tools and better understanding of how best to apply a HRBA to their projects and programs. The workshop shall be participatory allowing MMS members presenting their projects. In doing so we can learn from each other’s experiences."
