COVID-19 represents an unprecedented health, social and economic challenge in Australia and around the world. Support Burnet’s COVID-19 emergency response today.
Visit the International Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights Consortium (ISRHR Consortium) Hub - a dedicated hub in the Global Village for discussing issues around sexual and reproductive health and rights, and HIV.
Burnet is a founding member of ISRHR Consortium - a partnership of non-government organisations committed to advancing universal access to sexual and reproductive health and rights, with a focus on Asia and the Pacific.
Burnet’s Dr Elissa Kennedy will be in the Booth at various times during the conference discussing her work to improve young people’s access to comprehensive sexual and reproductive health information and services in Asia and the Pacific.
- 222 million women have an unmet need for effective contraception - A third of pregnant women living with HIV do not have access to interventions to prevent mother-to-child transmission or reduce their own risk of HIV-related maternal mortality
They are committed to ensuring that all individuals, regardless of race, gender, age, marital status, sexual orientation, disability, religious or political beliefs can enjoy the highest attainable standard of sexual and reproductive health. This includes the right to pursue a satisfying sex life free from discrimination, coercion and violence, and free from the risk of unintended pregnancy, sexually transmissible infection and HIV.
Their members work in more than 100 countries, bringing together diverse technical, policy, programmatic and research expertise in sexual and reproductive health and rights. Collectively, they advocate for increased political and financial investment in sexual and reproductive health and rights – recognising that this is central to the equitable achievement of global health and development goals, including gender equality, poverty reduction and environmental sustainability.
