This years’ May 28th International Day of Action for Women’s Health comes in a time of anniversaries: 20th anniversary of the Cairo International Conference on Population and Development, 20 years of the Beijing Platform of Action in 1995 and 15 years since the adoption of the Millennium Development Goals. The current United Nations processes focus on reviewing and assessing the gains made since these events, identifying remaining gaps and setting new development priorities for the years to come. The civil society works to ensure that the global and regional voices of women are heard at the UN, especially the voices advocating for sexual and reproductive health and rights which remain to be an issue we must continue to fight for. Not only it is a matter of women’s health. It is an issue of RIGHTS, reproductive and sexual rights, which are a part of human rights framework. The May 28 campaign is the opportunity to remind our community, law makers and politicians about this and call for a greater commitment to ensuring and securing these rights.
