About the Report
My Body Is My Own: Claiming the right to autonomy and self-determination
According to the UNFPA flagship State of World Population Report 2021, almost half of women in 57 developing countries are deprived of the right to make decisions about access to health care services, including sexual and reproductive health care and family planning services.
It is the first time that a United Nations report focuses on Bodily Autonomy where it measures a woman’s power over her body and her ability to make her own choices and the extent to which the laws of the countries support or interfere with the right of women to make these decisions.
The regional launch will be virtual via Zoom and it will be live streamed via UNFPA ASRO Facebook page.
