EBA invites experts, practitioners and decision makers to talk about current development issues in EBA-podden. Please note that the podcast is in Swedish.

In this episode, the podcast discusses norms and values ​​around sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) – and what this means for Sweden’s development assistance. A new EBA report examines norms and values ​​about SRHR in three countries in Africa. What do people think about issues such as abortion, contraception and the rights of LGBTQ people? And how do we work with SRHR in Swedish development assistance?
