Belgium put sexual and reproductive rights in the spotlight during the ‘European Sustainability Week’ in Berlin, June 2019. Sensoa participated in a panel with Moroccan documentary maker Mohammed Nabil and human rights activist Katrin Erlingsen of the NGO Deutsche Stiftung Weltvölkerung (DSW) at the Belgian Embassy in Berlin.
Our world is ‘urbanising’ rapidly: two out of every three people are likely to be living in cities or other urban areas by 2050. Cities are often unhealthy places to live, but they also offer opportunities for social change, innovation and inter-sectoral solutions, including health and sexual and reproductive health and rights.
The Be-cause health international conference on Urban health on 15-16 October 2019 in Brussels will address the following questions: How can we achieve universal access to health in cities? What is the best way to organise health services and the health system in urban settings? How does urban life affect the health of urban populations? Save the date and preliminary programme.

Sensoa analysed the attention for SRHR in the election programmes of the Belgian political parties in view of the 2019 Belgian federal and regional elections. This analysis showed that several political parties, from the right to the far left, think SRHR should remain a priority during the next government term.
