Panel: Women’s reproductive health, gender and human rights

The purpose of this panel is to present an overview of the relationship of gender inequity and human rights violations to significant levels of reproductive health morbidity and mortality for women, specifically in the area of family planning, maternal mortality, AIDS and violence. This panel is relevant and timely, given the recent five-year anniversary exercises that have assessed progress in implementing the women-friendly recommendations of the ICPD Program of Action and the reproductive health (RH)recommendations of the 4th World Conference on Women in Beijing. Adressing gender inequity and human rights violations in RH is not only a moral imperative but yields important, positive outcomes for public health
