A new Supplement of BMC International Health and Human Rights ‘Contextualising rights: the lived experience of sexual and reproductive health rights’ is available online for freeThe Supplement looks at how we can bridge the gap between international legal human rights frameworks as applied to sexual and reproductive rights (SRHR), and how these play out for actual people ‘on the ground’. We noted that there was a well-developed international language of human rights in relation to sexual and reproductive health, accompanied by significant international advocacy efforts stretching back several decades. However, SRHR remains controversial and contested; sexual rights in particular are poorly understood by many policy actors, they are not easy to operationalise ‘downstream’ in policies and programmes, and their place and relevance in people’s day to day lives have been much less explored.
