The Oxford Encyclopedia of Sexual and Reproductive Health

Healthy human development is traced back to favorable physical and social environments for pre-conceptional, pregnancy, and post-partum health of the female and fetus. But sexual and reproductive health (SRH) disparities persist. Sexual violence, infection, and inequitable maternal and infant survival persist. Politics and religious scrutiny also play significant roles. Commissioned as part of the ORE of Global Public Health, the proposed encyclopedia will emphasize the research regarding determinants of the different dimensions of SRH.
