Sexual and Reproductive Health:
Understanding Diverse Investments and Moving Forward under
Health Care Reform
In a proactive response to the challenges of providing high-quality sexual and reproductive health (SRH) care, SRH-focused donors, advocates, and other partners from both the private and public sectors have sought solutions, implemented new initiatives, and made investments to improve health outcomes. These investments have come from across the silos of a larger SRH health rubric. However, mapping and understanding the intersections and potential gaps in these diverse investments has not been done within the larger frame, but rather in individual sectors such as family planning, STDs, and HIV.
[LIST OF ORGANIZATIONS THAT COMPRISE THE PLANNING TEAM] are coming together to host a meeting with various partners that have made investments and have a stake in improving SRH outcomes in our region. Our hope is that this meeting will allow us the opportunity to span across the SRH sectors to better coordinate care and improve patient outcomes.
The purpose of this meeting is to gather stakeholders engaged in efforts to support and expand SRH, as a way to share information and foster opportunities for coordination to help improve health outcomes and ensure the accessibility of high-quality SRH services.
- State public sector partners such as STD Directors, HIV Directors, Immunization Directors, and Family Planning Directors
- Private sector partners such as state or regional SRH-focused service delivery providers or advocacy groups
- National private partners working in SRH
- National public sector partners working in SRH such as agencies of the Department of Health and Human Services
- Foundation donors focused on SRH
