NEW YORK, United States of America, October 13, 2021 / APO Group / –

UNFPA, the United Nations agency for sexual and reproductive health, has partnered with Hulhumale Hospital to create a single center offering comprehensive sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services, especially for adolescents, young people, women and girls. This is an important step for the Maldives to reduce unmet need for contraception; reduce preventable maternal deaths; and reduce gender-based violence and harmful practices, such as child marriage and female genital mutilation. It is the first center of its kind to provide reproductive health services to adolescents in one location, in Hulhumale.

This Center, officially launched on October 13, 2021, was made possible through the generous assistance of the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT / AUSAID). The Reproductive Health Center will provide comprehensive people-centered and youth-centered sexual and reproductive health services, covering conception, pregnancy, childbirth, newborn care, adolescent health, violence response sexist and the aging of the population.

It should be noted that this center provides essential reproductive health services to adolescents, especially young women and girls, people with disabilities and other marginalized groups – ensuring that they are not forgotten during the service delivery. As the Maldives must respond to the high unmet need for family planning as well as advocacy for SRH services to reach more young people, people-centered services are a key pledge made by the national delegation at the Nairobi Summit. of 2019, to achieve the sustainable goal of 2030. development goals and achieve the unfinished business of the program of action of the International Conference on Population and Development. As such, it is essential that we facilitate and expand SRH services in the future, ensuring that no one in the community is left behind. Sexual and reproductive health is an essential part of progressive development and the right to bodily autonomy – especially for adolescents, young women and girls in planning their own life path.

The Covid-19 pandemic has reminded us that sexual and reproductive health services are essential and must be a priority even in the midst of humanitarian situations. This concerted effort led by Hulhumale Hospital with the support of UNFPA is an important step in the context of the National Strategic Action Plan (PAS) and the path to recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. UNFPA works to support the government’s efforts to strengthen the sexual and reproductive health program in the Maldives, including providing technical support to build the capacity of health professionals, public health workers and undertaking research. . We need urgent political advocacy and analysis to address the challenges and ensure that those most left behind are brought back to the center.
