Barriers to health doesn't stop at sex
In this Women's Healthcare article you'll learn about:
- Sexual and reproductive health (SRH) is a key component of people's lives and overall health. People face barriers to optimal SRH, exacerbated by bias and discrimination in healthcare and policy.
- An SRHE approach necessitates breaking down siloes and seeing people's health in a holistic, integrated way. Sexual and reproductive coercion have been used as a tool of racial and gender oppression throughout US history.
- Coercive sterilization practices have continued into the 21st century in both detention and correctional settings. NPs must understand and counteract these forces if SRHE is to be achieved.
