To create a comprehensive report that describes the current state of sexual and reproductive health (SRH) in men and women, including fertility, within the EU.
The report will be the first to collect sexual and reproductive health and policy data in all Member States. Consistently with the 2007 Commission`s Work Plan`s health information priority strand, the report will:
- identify major disparities and inequalities in SRH among the 27 MS;
- test standardised methods of data collection, information exchange and reporting on SRH within EU;
- advocate for the importance of regular monitoring of SRH at the EU level.
The project will have a collaborating partner in each of the 27 MS and a research assistant that will analyse and combine all collected available SRH data in each MS. The main beneficiary will be assisted by a Steering Committee.
The project will provide evidence-based and up-to-date knowledge of the SRH situation in EU in order to inform and develop policies at the EU level that, taking local and national specificities into account, overcome several of the existing SRH inequalities.
