The World Health Organization (WHO) recently published a report on the relationship between sexual health, human rights, and the law. This report purports to show how "states in different parts of the world can and do support sexual health through legal and other mechanisms that are consistent with human rights standards and their own human rights obligations."
Over at USC News, reporter Larissa Puro lays out the logistics, and the benefits, of such a report.
News of this publication is especially fortuitous as this coming Monday, August 3, Contemporary Sexuality goes live with a feature story on how we (including the WHO) define sexual health, and how sexuality professionals are choosing to implement the principles of sexual health. This most recent report adds even more depth to questions of why and how sexuality and sexual health impact so much of our lives and our legislation.
