This document provides guidance on the different dimensions of human rights that need to be systematically and comprehensively considered in the rights based provision of sexual and reproductive health services. The framework applies internationally recognized human rights laws to aspects of health care delivery and provides concrete examples of how rights dimensions must be respected, protected and fulfilled. The principles and standards are indivisible, and must be considered as a complete set in assessing services. In this instance, we apply the framework to the contraceptive services as an illustrative example.
