Sexual and reproductive rights are lacking in latin-American and Caribbean

Luis Távara Orozco

Resumen


when I received an invitation to write the editorial for this issue of the Revista Colombiana de Obstetricia y Ginecología I did not hesitate in accepting it, not just for the honour which it represented for me, but also for the opportunity to reiterate the Latin American Federation of Obstetrics and Gynaecology Societies (FLASOG)
responsibilit y for defending the sexual and reproductive rights (SRR) of Latin-American and Caribbean females.
