Brief Description


The national policy on reproductive health (RH) was drawn up and adopted in 2003. The priority components defined in this policy are not only those specific to the four strands of Reproductive Health (children, adolescents and young people, women and men) but also common ones such as measures against practices that are harmful to sexual and reproductive health(domestic violence, genital mutilation, etc.). The policy also gives a prominent place to women’s health, including aspects of safe motherhood.
