Reproductive Health and Rights: Reaching the Hardly Reached

This important book brings together a public health and human rights focus on the reproductive health and rights of women and men who are the most disadvantaged and underserved: the "hardly reached." Each article fills a significant gap in our understanding of the health needs of those least served by existing reproductive health programs, including survivors of gender-based violence, refugees, sexual minorities, indigenous women, adolescents and young girls and women who have been trafficked.
