Briefing Paper: Improving International Human Rights Standards on Adolescents’ Sexual and Reproductive Health Rights

This briefing paper discusses some gaps in jurisprudence by the Committee on the Rights of the Child and the Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination Against Women with respect to the sexual and reproductive rights of adolescents in view of social and legal realities in the South Asia region. The paper makes recommendations to United Nations treaty monitoring bodies for improving standards in their Concluding Observations to South Asian countries and General Comments that would strengthen guarantees for adolescents' sexual and reproductive rights.
