COVID-19: Rwanda's preparedness and response

Reproductive Right and Justice Convening 2022

RJRC2022 is a unique platform in a convening style that brings together people from different backgrounds to come at the center of conversations addressing Injustice in access to Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights information and services and shape the future of Reproductive Justice – we are very glad to be hosting this convening for the first time in our beautiful country, Rwanda.

Access to comprehensive sexual and reproductive health and rights is a basic human right. However, preventable challenges around attaining the success of this precious foundation are numerous and more diverse in low and middle-income countries. The first RJRC2022 will happen for the first time in the heart of Africa, Kigali, Rwanda. The first of its kind will have a theme “Addressing what slows the success_ A way to overcome sexual and reproductive justice challenges for all".
