Replenishing Bodies and the Political Economy of SRHR in Crisis and Emergencies

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

    Abstract

    Sexual and reproductive health ‘is a state of physical, emotional, mental, and social wellbeing in relation to all aspects of sexuality and reproduction, not merely the absence of disease, dysfunction, or infirmity’ (Starrs et al. 2018). Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) emphasise a ‘human rights discourse around the body and its needs for security, health and pleasure’ (Petchesky 2005, 303).1 SRHR refer to a range of interrelated freedoms and entitlements such as the freedom to make informed decisions regarding one’s body without violence or discrimination, and the entitlement to the progressive realisation of full access to health information, facilities, services, and supplies (CEDAW 2013; Starrs et al. 2018).
