Sexuality and reproductive capacity are fundamental aspects of being human. Our sexual and reproductive health and wellbeing is as important to our quality of life as other key aspects of health such as physical and mental health and wellbeing. This is true regardless of age, gender, culture, abilities, sexual orientation or other characteristics that make up our identity.
