HERA’s annual report, for 2016, is here. It was a year when the political crisis in the country deepened, the functioning of the state institutions was significantly blocked, and the dialogue with the authorities reduced.
Under such circumstances, any chances of lobbying for the sexual and reproductive health rights got very slim. However,we were not discouraged.The number of young and marginalised communities that we educate and provide services for has increased. During the parliamentary elections, together with our partners, we obtained the political parties’ support for the promotion of sexual and reproductive health rights. Together with our partners, we got internationally involved in the review of Macedonia’s report on the implementation of the Covenant on Economic, Cultural and Social Rights.
This is only a small part of what we’ve achieved last year.
