Recent struggles around SRHR in the Philippines

In this video, dr Estrada Claudio, of University of the Philippines, talks about the struggle to establish reproductive rights and services

Please listen to dr Estrada Claudio. She is Dean of the College of Social Work at the University of the Philippines, Diliman and co-founder of Likhaan. She gives insight into the history of the struggle to establish rights and services around reproductive health at the national level and the complexities of this process.
