The general sexual and reproductive health and rights objectives are to improve reproductive and sexual health in developing countries and to secure the right of women, men and adolescents to good reproductive and sexual health by providing financial assistance and appropriate expertise — with a view to promoting a holistic approach to, and increased recognition of, reproductive and sexual health and rights as defined in the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) programme of action. This includes safe motherhood and universal access to a comprehensive range of safe and reliable reproductive and sexual healthcare, services, supplies, education and information (including information on all kinds of family planning methods). It also includes reducing maternal mortality and morbidity rates, with particular reference to the countries and populations where these are highest.
