Sexual and reproductive health and rights
Sexual and reproductive health and rights are closely connected with gender-based violence and HIV. For more in-depth information about this, see Salamander Trust’s collaborative research conducted for WHO on the sexual and reproductive health and human rights of women living with HIV.
Sexual and reproductive health and rights issues were not an explicit focus of the original Stepping Stones manual. However the Gambia version of the manual developed these and much of what was developed in the Gambia can now be found also in Stepping Stones & Stepping Sontes Plus, together with additional material designed specifically to uphold the sexual and reproductive health and rights of people living with HIV.
The sexual and reproductive health and rights of people, those living with HIV especially, are often not observed. Measures in some countries to criminalise the transmission of HIV and to criminalise people of different sexual orientations and/or different sexual identities have added to the abuse of human rights and have also consequently increased the spread of HIV.
Salamander Trust conducts many different research, advocacy and training projects related to these issues. To learn more about these, click here.
