SRI launches National Sexual Rights Law and Policy

National Sexual Rights Law and Policy Database
National Sexual Rights Law and Policy Database

The Sexual Rights Initiative is delighted to announce that our National Sexual Rights Law and Policy Database is now live! Thank you to the many, many people who helped make this project a reality.

What it is all about?

Sexualrightsdatabase.org is a one-stop-shop for national Constitutions, laws and policies related to sexual rights, including reproductive rights and sexual and reproductive health. Users can search by country or issue and can compare across countries.

Why did we set up this database?

The right to make decisions regarding ones own sexuality and reproductive life, to accessible and affordable health services and to accurate, comprehensive health information are fundamental human rights. Yet, States in every part of the world continue to violate sexual rights with laws that seek to criminalize aspects of sexuality and reproduction, with discriminatory policies that limit access to a range of services and information, and with the absence of laws and policies necessary to respect, protect and fulfill the rights of all people.

Access to up-to-date information pertaining to national laws, policies and programs is critical to defending and promoting sexual rights at the national and international level. With this information in hand, advocates, organizations and governments are empowered to engage in constructive dialogue, hold governments accountable and to support the realization of sexual rights for all.

Who can use the database?

The database will be useful for diplomats, activists, academics and policy makers as a tool to advance sexual rights and hold States accountable for their human rights obligations. The website is open access and available to all people for free.

Where can I access it?

www.sexualrightsdatabase.org

How can I contribute?

The database is designed to be a dynamic tool regularly updated by our team of researchers and validated by experts in-country. Help us keep the information up to date by telling us when a law or policy has changed, volunteer to be a validator of baseline data or refer our team to an expert in your country that can help. We are also looking for feedback on the database itself, including user friendliness, suggestions for improvements and testimonials on how you have used the database in your work.
