ANSER is an international research platform fostering interaction and knowledge sharing between academics and policy makers. The members engage in cutting-edge joint research projects, weigh-in on current policy debates and host innovative training programs. As a global resource for SRHR policy research, education and service delivery ANSER helps building evidence based policies that support sexual and reproductive rights for everyone, everywhere.

Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) lies at the immediate intersect of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for Health and Gender Equality. SRHR should therefore be central to all policies advancing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Sound SRHR policymaking necessitates an evidence base to ensure their adequacy and effectiveness, reliable follow-up and monitoring, accountability, and regular sharing of experiences between different types of stakeholders.
