UNFPA

UNFPA, 1994, in their charter on Programme of Action of the International Conference on Population and Development, has cited that “Reproductive health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity, in all matters relating to the reproductive system and to its functions and processes.” This definition makes clear that the individuals have the right for seeking information, access to good health care services, right for safe family planning methods as granted to them by the law, right to seek appropriate health care services which ensures women to safely undergo pregnancy and childbirth and gives the couple every chance to have a healthy infant.
Based on these, it can be said that reproductive health care is an umbrella term used for explaining methods, techniques and services accessed by those in need for prevention on reproductive health care needs and also solving them. Sexual health also forms one of the important aspects of reproductive health.
