Hi there. Can I tell you what I dream of doing?
I want to implement universal access to sexual and reproductive healthcare. Universal in the sense that it belongs to every person, regardless of their gender, nationality, age etc. and access in the form of both provision and education of such healthcare. This policy ensures people have the agency they need over their lives and the knowledge and understanding to make important decisions.
It's all part of making a better world.
Change looks like rolling out comprehensive educational materials to equip people with the knowledge they need to make decisions about their sexual and reproductive lives. This would also mean that people are aware of how they can access contraception, abortion and other reproductive healthcare - and these are all free (at the point of delivery), safe, legal and local.
This is really going to help people.
The impact of my vision will be mainly felt by young people, particularly young women and non-binary people. Education must be projected worldwide, but provision of healthcare may be focussed on certain geographic areas where access to reproductive healthcare such as abortion is extremely limited, e.g. Latin America. Universal access to contraceptives may impact many women in African countries, also.
It's not just about having an idea though - here are the things I know I can achieve:
Free, safe, legal and local access to reproductive healthcare
Comprehensive educational resources on sexual health(care)
Educated citizens who have agency over their lives
I'm going to make this happen, and this is how I know it'll make a difference.
Success could be measured by cross-country analyses of both qualitative and quantitive data. This data would seek to examine if citizens understand their rights to sexual and reproductive healthcare and how to access them - this would measure the success of proposed educational materials in producing citizens who are assured in their decisions to use (or not use) contraceptives and other healthcare.
Thanks for listening to me. Will you help me build a better world?
