Who we are

We are a Southern-based global, member-driven network that builds and strengthens movements for Sexual and Reproductive Health, Rights (SRHR) and justice. We work to realise the full SRHR of all people, with a particular focus on the most marginalised.

Established in 1984 in the Netherlands, WGNRR has 30 years' experience of mobilising and campaigning on SRHR issues. In 2008, WGNRR relocated the Coordinating Office from Amsterdam to Manila, where it is currently headquartered.

WGNRR has a consultative status with the United Nations (ECOSOC). We are not a funding or donor organisation.

Dr. Dalvie watched "Breaking the Silence" a 45-minute play on abortion based on the accounts of women in the Philippines which was performed by Filipino actresses. The play was a venture by WGNRR along with local and international partners.

Women's Promotion Center (WPC) from Tanzania was created in 2002 with a vision of creating a society that recognizes and respects women's rights and dignity, and upholds equality between women and men. WPC’s mission is to foster and empower women’s groups to build a strong women’s grassroots movement that would bring about positive change in individual behavior and social policy.
