Poor sexual and reproductive health (SRH) and HIV share common root causes, and yet, the respective responses to HIV and to sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) remain largely unaligned, uncoordinated, and under-resourced. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are an important opportunity to advance an integrated SRHR and HIV agenda by recognizing the importance of universal SRH for achieving health (SDG 3). However, there are significant gaps. With growing conservatism to gender and human rights-based policies, including the Global Gag Rule, now more than ever there is a need for joint action by governments and communities, civil society organizations, international organizations, and researchers supporting a strong response to address SRHR and HIV.
