Sexual and reproductive health â€˜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 infirmityâ€™ (Starrs et al. 2018). Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) emphasise a â€˜human rights discourse around the body and its needs for security, health and pleasureâ€™ (Petchesky 2005, 303).1 SRHR refer to a range of interrelated freedoms and entitlements such as the freedom to make informed decisions regarding oneâ€™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).
