About

The 2014 Calgary World Health Organization simulation will focus on reproductive health and the call for Reproductive Rights. It aims to bring together students from all disciplines to create an opportunity to develop solutions to issues impacting reproductive health that are in accordance with the means and goals of WHO.

Reproductive health is a crucial part of general health and a central feature of human development.  It is a reflection of health during childhood, crucial during adolescence and adulthood, sets the stage for health beyond the reproductive years for both women and men, and affects the health of the next generation.

 

Reproductive health calls for reproductive rights, a subset of human rights in the global front that ensures the right to access good-quality reproductive healthcare such as providing access to good healthcare services during pregnancy and child birth, education and access in order to make free and informed reproductive choices.

 

The above further ensures the right to receive education about sexually transmitted infections, to legal or safe abortion; to birth control; freedom from coerced sterilization, abortion, contraception; and other aspects of sexuality, and protection from gender-based practices such as female genital mutilation. Reproductive health is defined as a state of physical, mental, and social well-being in all matters relating to the reproductive system, at all stages of life.

 

As part of our theme Reproductive Rights we will have three sub-categories consisting of sexual health, contraception, and pregnancy, which will further engage our delegates.
