Sexual and Reproductive Health and Reproductive Rights Country Profile
Resource date: Oct 2020
The Sexual and Reproductive Health and Reproductive Rights Country Profile provides further analysis of SDG indicators 5.6.1 and 5.6.2 for 102 countries, under SDG Target 5.6 "Ensure universal access to sexual and reproductive health and reproductive rights as agreed in accordance with the Programme of Action of the International Conference on Population and Development and the Beijing Platform for Action and the outcome documents fo their review conferences."
SDG Indicators 5.6.1 and 5.6.2., for which UNFPA is custodian, measure the legal and regulatory framework for sexual and reproductive health and reproductive rights, as well as women’s reproductive decision-making. Combined, they provide insight into key dimensions of sexual and reproductive health and reproductive rights, with SDG 5.6.2 reflecting the extent to which prevailing laws enable or disable women’s and men’s full and equal access to this health and rights, while SDG 5.6.1 reflects whether women, irrespective of the country’s legal framework, are able to decide on their sexual and reproductive health and reproductive rights. This allows a complementary examination of whether a country has a positive enabling legal and normative framework, and whether its provisions go the last mile to empower all women and girls.
The country profiles include visualization of sub-indicators for SDG indicator 5.6.1, mapping SDG indicator 5.6.1 at the sub-national level, visualization of component data for SDG indicator 5.6.2, and detailed analysis of legal and regulatory environment for sexual and reproductive health and rights based on SDG indicator 5.6.2.
