Every woman and girl has the human right to decide
if and when she wants to be pregnant,
no matter where she lives.
The HR2FP Initiative is now part of Uplift International.
The Human Right to Family Planning (HR2FP) Initiative has emerged from the enthusiasm and commitment among the 2015 HR2FP Conference participants seeking to move forward an agenda of health and justice.
Our HR2FP conference in 2015 was the first of its kind, exploring the human right to family planning. It brought together speakers and participants from different disciplines to discuss the timely issues regarding sexual and reproductive health and rights, including abortion. There were lawyers, health care providers, program managers from NGOs, international organizations and foundations. The participants represented global and public health, law, family medicine, pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, nursing and pharmacy. The following countries were represented: Namibia, Nigeria, People’s Republic of China, India, Honduras, Mexico, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Canada and the U.S.
We learned, exchanged ideas and discussed necessary action plans to improve family planning—and sexual and reproductive health and rights, more generally—globally and locally. We have seen so much progress for women and girls and yet there is so much more to do.
The HR2FP Initiative will work hard to improve the reproductive health and rights of women and girls in the U.S. and globally.
