ASTRA Network is proud to present our newest publication.
“The fight hidden in plain sight. Sexual and reproductive health and rights in Central and Eastern Europe and Central Asia” is a comprehensive guide to SRHR in the region. With inputs provided by local organisations from each country, the report presents legal framework for specific SRHR-related topics, as well as implementation of the law from grassroot perspective.
From the introduction:
Today, at the beginning of a new decade, we are presenting you with the newest and most comprehensive publication about sexual and
reproductive health and rights in Central and Eastern Europe and Central Asia. The report you are holding right now is a coherent overview of 14 countriesâ€™ situations regarding abortion, contraception, pre- and antenatal care, sexuality education, LGBTQI+ rights and gender-based violence â€“ all written from the perspective of local activists. In the spirit of providing a platform for regional initiatives, all the inputs were provided by our member organisations and their national associates. Central and Eastern Europe, and Central Asia tend to be left out of the conversation when it comes to building civil societies and protecting human rights. Hopefully, this report will change the way you think about our region â€“ which is an unnoticed bastion of fight for basic human rights.
