World Must Address Reproductive Rights For Women, Girls

Devex: On World Population Day, a startling picture for women and girls
Renate Baehr, executive director of DSW — Deutsche Stiftung Weltbevölkerung

“…[O]n World Population Day, we must acknowledge that we are failing the 500 million girls in low- and middle-income countries. If we are to properly address the challenges they face, we need to prioritize girls and young women in international development policy and in the post-2015 framework. Ensuring that they have full access to their sexual and reproductive health and rights is a fundamental part of this challenge…” (7/11).
