    Self-care interventions sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) offer opportunities for individuals to improve their autonomy and agency regarding their own health.  Self-care can also provide an innovative approach to strengthening health systems to improve access to quality interventions and universal health coverage. The WHO is developing a consolidated Guideline containing evidence-based recommendations outlining key public health care interventions for SRHR, with a focus on vulnerable populations and settings with limited capacity and resources in the health system.

    The WHO and United Nations University is pleased to invite you to the launch of the British Medical Journal (The BMJ)  supplement entitled ‘Self-care interventions for sexual and reproductive health and rights’. This special supplement includes a collection of analysis, systematic reviews and opinion pieces, providing an evidence base for the development of global normative guidance.

    The launch will be prefaced by a panel discussion featuring top names in #selfcare and #SRHR research and policy development.
