The European Parliamentary Forum for Sexual and Reproductive Rights is a network of Members of Parliament throughout Europe who are committed to protecting the sexual and reproductive rights (SRHR) of the world’s most vulnerable people, both at home and overseas. The Secretariat is based in Brussels.
In advocating for these human rights, EPF parliamentarians work on the following topics, amongst others.
We are stronger when we speak with a single voice. Amplifying the unified voice of MPs committed to SRHR is central to our mission. EPF provides a venue for parliamentarians to coordinate common statements on international developments related to SRHR.
Typically, these statements urge action from governments and international organisatons; or call on states to place women’s empowerment at the centre of key international agreements.
Over the years, EPF has built good relations with SRHR champions through the European All-Party Parliamentary Groups, the European Parliament working group MEPs for SRR and the Global Parliamentary Alliance for Health, Rights and Development.
