COVID-19 and the Politics of Reproductive Health: Global Perspectives

July 29, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

The COVID-19 pandemic has challenged health systems around the world, displacing attention to other much-needed services and conditions. It has particularly impacted access to sexual and reproductive health goods and services⁠—not only in the U.S., as discussed in Reproductive Rights in 2020: June Medical Services v. Russo and COVID-19, but around the globe. While in some places governments have made concerted efforts to mitigate the displacement of sexual and reproductive health services by telehealth and other means, in many others the pandemic has provided cover for policies that neglect and even undermine reproductive health and rights. Reproductive rights movements and mobilizations (including around abortion) have been interrupted; contraception access has been affected; and sexual and obstetric violence have both increased. Join us for a discussion of the impact that COVID-19 has had on sexual and reproductive health and rights around the world.
