“There is no universal health without sexual and reproductive health”
The World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations Population Fund are launching a Sexual and Reproductive Health and Universal Health Coverage Learning by Sharing Portal (SRH-UHC-LSP). The SRH-UHC LSP, launching on July 19, is a global resource that will feature national-level stories with a focus on sexual and reproductive health (SRH) and its role in universal health coverage.
The portal will feature, a “Bottleneck analysis for the last-mile distribution of contraceptives in Zambia,” a story by Joy Walubita. Joy is ThinkWell’s Health and Governance Team Lead in Zambia and has worked for over 20 years to strengthen the Ministry of Health’s systems and rectify risks concerning financial and procurement management systems.
Increasing domestic funding for SRH is essential to achieving universal health coverage. Joy’s contribution to the LSP advocates for access to quality and comprehensive SRH in universal health care.
The LSP and WHO’s Handbook on Sexual and Reproductive Health-UHC Integration—released earlier this month—are among the tools WHO and partners will use to incorporate SRH into national health plans, budgets, and programming.
Mark your calendars for July 19 to read Joy’s contribution to the LSP launch and learn more about the portal here.
