The Center for Reproductive Rights has developed a factsheet regarding Human Rights and ICPD +25.
This year marks the 25th anniversary of the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) in Cairo, where 179 governments adopted a landmark Programme of Action to empower all people to take decisions regarding their sexual and reproductive health to improve their lives, realize human rights and build stronger communities. Without fully respecting, protecting, and fulfilling sexual and reproductive rights, the ambitious targets of the ICPD Programme of Action cannot be realized. In the 25 years since the ICPD, substantial progress has been made in defining sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) in international human rights law. This fact sheet highlights recent progress from the United Nations treaty bodies, which define international human rights standards, and illustrates the inextricable linkages between the realization of sexual and reproductive rights and the goals defined in the ICPD Programme of Action.
