[Comment] Sexual and reproductive health and rights for all: an urgent need to change the narrative

The world has made remarkable progress since the 1974 World Population Conference in Bucharest and the 1984 International Conference on Population in Mexico. The link between population and development was affirmed at the 1994 International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) in Cairo with the adoption of the Programme of Action, which brought a sharper focus on women and introduced new concepts such as sexual and reproductive health and reproductive rights. ICPD also gave prominence to reproductive health and women’s empowerment.
