Civil society and the United Nations Population Fund (UNFP) met on June 23 in Rabat for the launch of the first consortium for sexual and reproductive health rights.
During the ceremony, the spokesperson of the consortium, Latifa Jamai, explained that this new group constitutes an alliance of non-governmental organizations, civil society, associations for the defense of women’s rights, and youth networks which aims to strengthen advocacy on this subject, increase the availability of information and sexual and reproductive health care and accelerate the achievement of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 3 and 5, relating respectively to health and gender equality.
This alliance also sets itself the mission of contributing to the monitoring of the implementation of public health policies in Morocco, in particular the achievement of the national strategy for sexual and reproductive health 2021-2030.
