GDC supports sexual and reproductive services for survivors of conflict-related sexual violence

Global Doctors for Choice appealed to the UN Security Council to support the inclusion of comprehensive sexual and reproductive health and safe abortion in the resolution related to sexual violence in conflict. GDC praised the UN secretary general’s recommendations regarding conflict‐related sexual violence, and specifically to strengthen services for the survivors of sexual violence by ensuring comprehensive sexual and reproductive care.

GDC also wrote to The Guardian to thank them for their article, “US threatens to veto UN resolution on rape as weapon of war, officials say.” Unfortunately, the UN resolution was approved without the mention of sexual and reproductive health services, to which the US objected.
