International Expert Group Meeting on “Sexual Health and Reproductive Rights

The United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues has the mandate to discuss indigenous issues related to economic and social development, culture, the environment, education, human rights and health and to provide expert advice and make recommendations to Member States as well as the UN system. Throughout its twelve sessions, the Permanent Forum has made 19 recommendations that deal specifically with sexual health and/or reproductive health and rights. At its eighth session in 2009, the Permanent Forum recommended that an expert group meeting on sexual health and reproductive rights be held. This EGM is in response to this recommendation.

At its twelfth session in May 2013, the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues decided to organize an international expert group meeting on the theme “Sexual health and reproductive rights: articles 21, 22 (1), 23 and 24 of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples”. This meeting will be held at the United Nations Headquarters in New York from 15 to 17 January 2014. This is the first international expert group meeting on indigenous peoples’ sexual and reproductive health and rights organized by the United Nations.
