Family, society and the state must come forward to prevent suppression against women and children
Women’s health is a fundamental human right. The sub-committee prioritizes women’s health by implementing various multidimensional programs. The sub-committee has been working on the implementation of awareness-based advocacy and action plans through mediums such as safe women’s health, reproductive health, and elderly health. Women’s reproductive health, sexual health, family planning, and maternal mortality are subjects where the majority of the population in the country is provided with opportunities for institutional, non-institutional, and family-based scientific education.
Distorted education violates women’s reproductive health rights, sexual health rights; to adopt a program from violating human rights, it is necessary to provide appropriate understanding on the subject of physical and mental health during adolescence. We need to eliminate all forms of violence against women by conducting religious and gender-sensitive educational programs.
Women’s reproductive health, sexual health, family planning, and maternal mortality are subjects where the majority of the population in the country is provided with opportunities for formal, informal, and family-based scientific education. Distorted education violates women’s reproductive health rights, sexual health rights; adopting an action plan instead of violating human rights. To ensure women’s contribution to national development, the Cairo Conference in 1993 declared that women’s reproductive health and sexual rights should be guaranteed as a condition for development.
To ensure women’s true contribution, it is necessary to include science-based curriculum in all levels of education to transform women into skilled human resources. This curriculum should cover reproductive health, sexual health, and sexual behavior.During adolescence, it is important to provide appropriate understanding about changes in physical and mental health. It is necessary to conduct cultural-free religious and gender-free education programs to eliminate all forms of violence against women.
