We empower women to take charge of their health by providing access to information, making informed choices, and advocating for themselves and demanding quality care when necessary.
Victoria, Canada: Free and Paid Sexual & Reproductive Health Access Guide
The UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development contains a" number of targets related to reproductive health. Specifically, target 3.7 calls for ensuring universal access to sexual and reproductive health-care services, including family planning, information and education, and the integration of reproductive health into national strategies and programmes by 2030."
This Access Guide is in line with SNIWWOC's mandate to explore reproductive justice using food, art, and education. It is important to acknowledge the ways in which multiple and intersecting forms of discrimination and stigma can create barriers in accessing information about essential health services in Victoria BC, leading to poor health outcomes.
We have distributed over 5,000 pamphlets to multiple non-profit organizations, community centres, and healthcare facilities across Victoria.
