Renewed commitment to reduce inequalities in sexual and reproductive health in Eastern Europe and Central Asia

Over a 140 participants from 19 countries, representing governments, parliaments, civil society, young people and academia, gathered in Sofia, Bulgaria in May 27-29, 2015,  to participate in the Regional Conference “Promoting Health and Rights, Reducing Inequalities: Towards Better Sexual and Reproductive Health Outcomes in Eastern Europe and Central Asia”.

Participants in the Conference, conveyed by UNFPA, reviewed the progress made and identified priorities to advance sexual and reproductive health and reproductive rights, and reduce inequalities in Eastern Europe and Central Asia. Priorities and pledges to accelerate progress are listed in the  Sofia Declaration of Commitment.

The European Consortium for Emergency Contraception hopes to contribute to the implementation of the Sofia Declaration, making emergency contraceptives more accessible in Easter Europe and Central Asai (EECA), and reducing inequalities in access within the Europe region.
