GUWAHATI, Dec 3 - UNFPA�s State of World Population 2015 was launched in New York globally, and in Guwahati at a programme held today.

The title of this year�s report is, �Shelter from the Storm: A Transformative Agenda for Women and Girls in a Crisis-Prone World�.

UNFPA�s report calls on governments, development and humanitarian communities everywhere to move health and rights of women and girls, and in particular their sexual and reproductive health, from the backseat to the forefront of the transformative agenda.

Toshihiro Tanaka, UNFPA Deputy Representative who was present at the programme said, �Without the uninterrupted sexual and reproductive health services and usual protection of family and community, women and adolescent girls can face increased risks of maternal mortality and morbidity, and may become victims of sexual violence, unintended pregnancies and sexually transmitted infections.� He said women�s health and rights are under siege when natural disasters topple hospitals, when conflicts undermine rule of law and heighten vulnerabilities to rape, when an epidemic makes it unsafe for expectant mothers to find the services of a midwife.
