This paper is the outcome of a consultation with the foreign affairs ministries and development agencies of Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the UK and the EU institutions. These governments and institutions share a common goal: to work for the realization of sexual and reproductive health and rights globally. This paper explores their approaches and priorities and how these reinforce each other, and maps out the elements of a shared vision for a full sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) agenda worldwide. The analysis is based on policy documents and insights gathered from discussions with government representatives in April and May 2020.
