Guttmacher Institute's Recommended Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights Indicators for the Post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals

As part of the post-2015 process to develop recommendations for indicators for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the Guttmacher Institute has conducted exploratory research and analysis on potential sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) indicators and their data sources, and held a series of meetings and consultations with a range of partners. We have taken into account the SRHR topic areas that advocates identified as the highest priorities, the availability of reliable country data, and the imperative to identify a limited number of relevant indicators. Specifically, we assessed potential SRHR indicators in terms of their relevance and feasibility, focusing especially on the extent to which each indicator reflects core SRHR principles and outcomes, and whether data are available for a significant proportion of countries, are nationally representative and are tracked over time.
The indicators recommended in these documents fall under three different SDG identified goals, and their targets: Goal 3 - Health, target 3.7; Goal 4 - Education, target 4.7; and Goal 5 - Gender Equality, target 5.6. The recommended indicators demonstrate the strong links between SRHR and other proposed goals on the post-2015 agenda for global development.
