Officials are working closely together to ensure coherence between the Sexual and Reproductive Health and Women’s Health Strategies.

Development of the Sexual and Reproductive Health Strategy and Women’s Health Strategy was paused at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, work on both strategies is now getting underway. We plan to publish the Sexual and Reproductive Health Strategy in 2021, details of the scope and objectives will be announced in due course. We are currently working to consider priorities for the Women’s Health Strategy including how we can ensure that women’s voices are heard more effectively moving forward.
