Call for papers: Exploring Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) inequities within countries

The journal of Reproductive Health Matters invites submissions that explore inequities in relation to sexual and reproductive health rights (SRHR), as they play out within national borders. Many global health platforms and programmes, including those focusing on SRHR, use the State as their referent point, with objectives set and progress measured at the national level. While important, this can too easily gloss over the important health inequities that exist within the borders of a state, potentially leaving many of the most vulnerable behind.

In this issue, authors are asked to explore differences in services, quality of services and care, health knowledge, and health outcomes within countries, based on what are often intersecting social divisions such as race, age, ethnicity, caste, disability, sexuality, and gender. With this issue, RHM aims to contribute to growing global efforts to build the base of evidence for interventions that tackle inequities, and improve sexual and reproductive health outcomes, well-being, and access to rights for all.
