aditus foundation welcomes the position paper Women’s Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights published by the Women’s Rights Foundation earlier this year.
The position paper adopts a rights-based approach to a topic that for too long has remained a national taboo, yet which continues to affect thousands of women, and men, in Malta.
Sexual and reproductive rights are fundamental human rights and, as such, merit to be respected, protected and fulfilled. The paper’s recommendations urge Malta to reflect on the status quo, with a viewing to engaging in an effective and inclusive reform process.
With human rights at the core of our activities, we fully endorse and support the recommendations made by the Women’s Rights Foundation, and look forward to participating in the forthcoming national discussion.
