Sexual Health & Sustainable Development Goals: Leaving No One Behind in the Global Health Agenda
October 13, 2021 @ 12:00–1:00 pm
On October 13, Dr. Carmen Logie delivered the Peter Wall Institute Visiting Research Scholar talk, co-hosted by the School of Population and Public Health and the Centre for Gender & Sexual Health Equity.
About the talk
Sexual rights and sexual pleasure are missing from the Sustainable Development Goals’ focus on sexual and reproductive health. Why does this matter, and who does it matter for? CGSHE faculty member Dr. Carmen Logie, Peter Wall Institute International Visiting Research Scholar, explores how these missing discourses can perpetuate sexual health inequities toward sexually and gender diverse persons, and sex workers, in diverse global contexts. She also examine frameworks and innovative methods for addressing these gaps in global sexual health research.
