Reproductive health indicators in the European Union (REPROSTAT)
REPROSTAT 3 is a project that aims to create a comprehensive report that describes the present state of Sexual and Reproductive Health and Fertility (man and woman) within the 27 European
Union Member States.
A range of literature will be reviewed in all 27 MS to create a SRH and policy "profile" for each member state, including existing official laws and guidelines; scientific and academic organizations position papers, articles, book chapters, reports, guidelines; NGO documentation; relevant lay press analysis; and relevant "grey" literature. Search terms will include: contraception, teenage pregnancy, assisted reproductive technology, childbearing support, abortion. The local reviews will be done by the REPROSTAT collaborating partners in the member states. ICRH is the collaborating partner fro Belgium.
The data organization process (analysis and consolidation) will take place in Lisbon and will involve the systematic and critical collation of incoming data from each member state.
The final report will include the member state profiles, a comparison of the SRH situation within the EU, and suggestions to scientists, health authorities and providers, as well as to national and international policy makers.
The REPROSTAT website contains also the publications that resulted form previous REPROSTAT programmes (REPROSTAT 1 and 2).
