Campaign to support women's health rights
Announcement: Call for Action 2004: Coming Soon! Health for All, Health for Women. What do HEALTH SECTOR REFORMS have to do with it? In 1987, May 28th was proclaimed the International Day of Action for Women's Health. As every year, WGNRR is publishing a Call for Action to promote and advocate for women's sexual and reproductive health and rights. This year's Call for Action is part of the Women's Access to Health Campaign and focuses on the impact of health sector reforms on women's sexual and reproductive health. The Call for Action will be published in English, Spanish and French. Health is a human right for all and, as asserted in many international human rights covenants and agreements, the right to health cannot be fulfilled if women's sexual and reproductive rights are not addressed. However, health sector reforms and privatisation of health services around the world are jeopardising women's access to health and sexual and reproductive rights. It is time for action! We would like to invite you to support us in promoting women's sexual and reproductive health and rights by organising your own activity or event on the 28th of May. If you are not a member or campaign supporter of WGNRR already, just let us know ( if you would like to receive the Call for Action 2004. You will also be able to find it online ( by early April. Please let us know what your plans and ideas are for the 28th of May so we can all share experiences and ideas and increase our collaboration. Let's continue to join forces and make a difference! Health for all, Health for Women NOW!
