G7 Development Ministers Meeting Focused On Women, Girls But No Mention Of Reproductive Rights In Declaration

Devex: No mention of reproductive rights in declarations out of G7 development ministerial
“Official declarations released by the G7 at the conclusion of a three-day development ministerial focused on women and girls — but with no mention of reproductive rights.
