Last month, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Women's Health Protection Act—a federal law that would protect abortion nationwide. In Nepal and the Philippines, the Center for Reproductive Rights coordinated and participated in workshops designed to advance knowledge of sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) among judicial officers and youth advocates. And lastly, a new report shows COVID-19's impact on reproductive health care access in Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, and Uganda.
