International Human Rights References to SRHR

International Human Rights References to Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (regarding LGBT populations and HIV/AIDS and STIs)

ILGA-Europe has commissioned the production of this reference guide within a joint project “Prevention and Empowerment in the Commonwealth of Independent States (PRECIS)”, coordinated by COC Netherlands and financed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands.

The project aims at improving the sexual and reproductive health and enhancing the human rights of LGBT people in seven countries of Eastern Europe and Central Asia: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Moldova and Ukraine. Thus the primary target audiences of the guide are LGBT advocates in the countries belonging to the PRECIS partnership. 

However, the guide is applicable to, and can be used by, a wide international readership. The production of the reference guide has also been supported by Sigrid Rausing Trust.
