Read Share-Net Jordans latest position paper on Ageing and SRHR. The paper (in Arabic) examines the SRHR needs of people over the age of sixty, as an increasing demographic in Jordanian society. Scientific research, policies, and programs can often neglect the consideration of the SRHR needs of this segment of society, while SRHR affects the overall health of individuals and society. Non-communicable diseases are exacerbated in old age in women as a result of the cumulative effect of pregnancy and childbearing during the reproductive period, and there have been global calls for the need to implement a life-course approach to addressing sexual and reproductive health issues.

Therefore, this paper aims to shed light on the needs of the elderly in Jordan for sexual and reproductive health services and information, and to diagnose the gaps in data, research and programs related to sexual and reproductive health for the elderly, and to suggest studies that can provide scientific evidence about the needs of this segment.
