Starting this week, we will be bringing you a weekly roundup of global sexual and reproductive health and justice news!
Midwives travel on motorbike to deliver family planning information and supplies; anti-choice Rep. Joe Pitts is officially named as chair of committee with reproductive justice implications; HIV eradication and the WNBA; more on HIV “cure.”
Little attention is given to violence experienced by sex workers from those closest to them: their husbands, boyfriends and partners.
Cambodia was until recently praised by the international public health community for efforts to fight the spread of HIV. But a 2008 anti-trafficking law criminalized sex work and sent sex workers into hiding, undermining human rights and broader public health efforts.
NGO reports indicate that Cambodia, like many other countries, is falling short on its commitments to universal access to reproductive health services.
