Sexual and Reproductive Health
Sexual and reproductive health is a key dimension in the overall health of individuals and populations. Good sexual and reproductive health implies that people can make their own decisions about sexuality and reproduction, that they have access to information on family planning or sexually transmitted diseases or the contraception methods of their choice.
Moreover, improving sexual and reproductive health means that people should profit from health services that that allows them to enjoy a secure pregnancy, safe delivery and a healthy child. Swiss TPH concentrates its sexual and reproductive health activities around three major areas: adolescence, community focus and a life course and development perspective.
Facilitating Access to Perinatal Health Services in Romania
Swiss TPH helps to modernise health systems of Eastern European countries. In Romania for instance, experts facilitate access to specialised perinatal health services and sensitise young mothers to the needs of new-born children. These initiatives are part of Swiss TPH's role in managing Switzerland's contribution to the EU cohesion funds for Romania.
