How can the European Union protect sexual and reproductive rights in times of COVID-19?
The COVID-19 crisis is an opportunity for the EU to further align its development policies on
the Agenda 2030 and on the three pillars of sustainable development, economic, social and
environmental. While the world starts planning for a post-pandemic recovery, the SDGs
can help focus this recovery on inclusion, equality, and sustainability. The EU should
seize the opportunity to “build back better” by creating more sustainable, resilient and
inclusive societies where SRHR are well recognized and integrated.
These are our recommendations
for the EU on SRHR and COVID-19.
