Reporter’s Toolkit on Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights – Universal Access Project   

In light of recent funding cuts to vital global family planning programs, the Universal Access Project has compiled this toolkit as a resource for background, current context, and areas of intersection with SRHR, or the landscape of universal sexual and reproductive health and rights. From the toolkit: “This toolkit provides background, context and resources for journalists writing about global SRHR and related topics. It includes an overview of key challenges and opportunities in ensuring comprehensive SRHR; a snapshot of the current U.S. political landscape with regards to SRHR; a summary of global commitments to SRHR and progress against those commitments; and in-depth information and additional resources on a variety of SRHR-relevant topics.”
