The Manila Challenge: A Call to Achieve SRHR for All

The official text of “The Manila Challenge: A Call to Achieve SRHR for All” has been released! The complete statement can be downloaded here:

7th APCRSHR – The Manila Challenge

The concluding paragraph of the statement sums up the message as follows:

“This is a world of conflict, crisis, and persistent inequality and it is common for governments to cite other priorities ahead of SRHR. Missions of rescue, rehabilitation, and programs of development must address SRHR as core elements, without which all other investments are diminished. For this reason, We CHALLENGE all governments, civil society organisations, and religious institutions to demonstrate respect for SRHR by acknowledging SRHR needs of all people in all contexts now and into the future.”
