The recent International Conference on Population and Development was forced by Saudis and Sudanese to take out words "sexual" and "women's reproductive health" out of its end of conference communique.
It was held in Addis Ababa.
I noticed that in UK the rise of the religious in the administrative positions has led to avoidance of topics related to both men's and women's sexual health.
There has been persecution of doctors for many years who have been involved in those issues. Now even top lawyers have to agree to the ourageous requests at the international conferences. Rushing home via the first airport does not stop the need to deal with such issues as reproduction and poverty in the other parts of the world. I guess on return from such conferences one does not sleep that well for a little while.
