WGNRR SRHR Network and Database Policy and Guidelines

Women’s Global Network for Reproductive Rights’ Database contains profiles of our partners and allies. They are individuals, organisations and networks working wholly or partially – or with a demonstrable interest – in the field of SRHR for women and girls within the context of human rights, social justice, and other development paradigms. Our partners and allies must support women and girls universal access to non-discriminatory SRHR services including the right to safe abortion. Access to the database is password protected to ensure the security and safety of our partners and allies.
