Women and girls must be granted access to affordable and adequate healthcare. In particular, they must be granted universal access to sexual and reproductive health and reproductive rights.
Pregnancy should always be safe, even in states of emergency. This is the message conveyed in “Safe Birth. Even Here”, a campaign we put together alongside UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund, to put women’s health, safety and dignity at the humanitarian forefront on a global scale. It was launched in May of 2015 in honor of the World Humanitarian Summit in Istanbul, Turkey.
