Peace Corps - Sexual and Reproductive Health

Welcome to the Peace Corps' Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRH) Toolkit.

Achieving universal access to reproductive health has been added to the Millennium Development Goal (MDG) 5 because world leaders recognized that increased attention to sexual and reproductive health is a prerequisite for achieving MDG 5 on improving maternal health, and also contributes significantly to reducing poverty and hunger (MDG 1), promoting gender equality and empowerment of women (MDG 3) and combating HIV and other diseases (MDG 6).

 

We welcome and encourage use of the toolkit by Peace Corps Volunteers and staff globally.  We have designed this toolkit so we can share technical resources developed by expert organizations as well as Peace Corps developed materials  across Peace Corps Posts. For resources published by Peace Corps and our health partners, choose from the navigation on the right side of the page:
