    Rights-based approach frames an intervention to incorporate human rights and dignity; it empowers the target community by increasing the ability and accountability of individuals and institutions responsible for implementing the intervention. This presentation aims to explore how a rights-based approach to sexual and reproductive health helps us advance overall social progress and well-being at country level. The rights-based approach also ensures that we can overcome the final barriers that prevent us from reaching targets on maternal mortality and adolescent pregnancies.

    Come learn the lessons from Asian data on contraception, abortion, and adolescent girls from Ms. Sivananthi Thanenthiran of ARROW.
