Inspire is a vibrant European network dedicated to promoting universal access to sexual and reproductive health and rights worldwide. We do this by engaging in key debates shaping development cooperation and other global policies at the European and international level.
We are a membership network of non-governmental organizations working on sexual and reproductive health and rights in 24 European countries, collaborating closely with a wide range of partners across the world. We work by convening and networking, generating and sharing information and knowledge, strengthening skills, and promoting collective advocacy actions.
WE ARE UNITED BY…
- A common vision: We strive for a sustainable world without poverty, where all individuals have access to comprehensive sexual and reproductive health services and information and where sexual and reproductive rights are protected, respected and fulfilled as fundamental human rights.
- A common cause: We fight for the achievement of universal access to sexual and reproductive health and rights by promoting and advancing gains achieved since the 1994 International Conference on Population and Development in Cairo and the 1995 Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing and counteracting attempts to set back women’s rights.
- Shared values and beliefs: We believe in a human rights-based approach to development. We believe that sexual and reproductive health and rights are fundamental human rights and key enablers to achieve sustainable development and well-being — in particular, poverty eradication, economic growth, gender equality, women’s and girls’ empowerment, healthy lives, educational attainment and environmental sustainability. We believe in freedom of choice in matters of sexuality and reproduction, in equality and non-discrimination, in respect for bodily integrity and in the right to decide the number, timing and spacing of one’s children.
