The Directorate-General on Development Cooperation developed strategy notes which provide concrete guidelines with regard to SRHR. Be-cause health helped to write these guidelines and is currently working on an update of the SRHR module. In preparation of a new update of the general strategy note ‘Recht op gezondheid’ (Right to healthcare), Be-cause health also prepared a new SRHR module. This module proposes guidelines in relation to the implementation of Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) interventions and integration of the fight against HIV by actors of the Belgian development cooperation.
