Reproductive Health and Rights

Reproductive rights are central to HIV advocacy. All individuals, including those living with HIV, have the right to make informed, autonomous decisions about whether to bear a child and, for women, the appropriate care during pregnancy and childbirth. For people with HIV, reproductive decisions can be more complex, involving medical decisions that can drastically reduce the risk of transmission during insemination, pregnancy, childbirth, and feeding.

This HIV Policy Resource Bank category includes materials that concern the nexus of HIV and reproductive rights advocacy, including access to medical care, prevention methods, mother-to-child transmission, sexuality education, sperm washing, and more.
