Sexual Reproductive Health Rights
FIDA-Kenya participated at the 63rd Ordinary Session of the African Commission on Human and People’s Rights from 24th - 29th October, 2018. FIDA-Kenya co- hosted a side event on access to information on sexual and reproductive rights with the Center for Reproductive Rights.
FIDA-Kenya also hosted a side event on access to safe abortion and legal abortion. The panel discussed the legal status of abortion in Kenya, abortion experiences of women, and girls in Kenya, and how to surmount challenges and influence policy changes to reflect the aspirations of the Maputo Protocol.
The two side-events provided insights on reproductive health, opportunities for synergy and how to continuously push for the lifting of reservations of reproductive health rights as provided by the Maputo Protocol and the independence of the African Commission on Human and People’s Rights.
