Benefits of SRHR

Adding It Up outlines a new way of assessing the costs and benefits of investing in the three major areas of SRHR:

  1. Contraceptive services and supplies to help prevent unintended pregnancies.
  2. Maternal health services
  3. Prevention, diagnosis and treatment of STIs.

As policymakers at all levels consider their funding priorities in health and development programs, this new report is intended to help them take into account the medical, social and economic benefits of SRHR interventions.

Not all of the many and varied benefits outlined in the report are quantified as of yet, and some may not be quantifiable; however, all are indisputably valuable to individuals, their families and society.
