SECTION I: OUR BASIS OF UNITY

 
       
The European NGOs for Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights, Population and Development (EuroNGOs) is a European network of NGOs that collaborate on sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) issues in development cooperation and global policy. We believe that SRHR is both a fundamental human right and a key factor in well-being, poverty reduction, economic growth, environmental sustainability, gender equality, women’s empowerment and sustainable development, and we are united by our ambition to promote the achievement of universal access to SRHR.
       
We strive for a sustainable world without poverty where all individuals enjoy good sexual and reproductive health and well-being and are empowered to exercise their sexual and reproductive health and rights.
       
We believe:

  •  that sexual and reproductive health and rights are fundamental human rights;
  •  in equity and equality of all people, and we are committed to eliminating all forms of discrimination and violation of human rights;
  •  in freedom of choice in matters of sexuality and reproduction;
  •  that sexual and reproductive health and rights are key factors in well-being, poverty reduction, economic growth, environmental sustainability, gender equality, women’s empowerment and sustainable development;
  •  in partnership and solidarity between the ‘Global North’ and the ‘Global South’.

       
We collectively promote, as European advocates, comprehensive and progressive sexual and reproductive health and rights, the principles of which are enshrined in the ICPD Programme of Action, at European and global level.
