Right to a better world: documentary series
AfOx is proud to have supported a documentary series titled ‘Right to a Better World’ that was produced in collaboration with WHO and HRP, UN Human Rights (OHCHR) and the Oxford Human Rights Hub (OxHRH). The documentary explores how tactics developed by the human rights movement can be used to achieve sexual and reproductive health rights, and drive meaningful progress towards the fulfillment of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
There are four 20-minute episodes in Right To A Better World on themes of contraception , comprehensive sexuality education, maternal mortality and morbidity , and violence against women . All the videos are free to access.
In each episode across the series, experts in health and human rights share their professional struggles and successes working on the frontline of communities worldwide. As advocates and activists, they represent a broad range of professional fields, ages, levels and backgrounds.
The episodes can be watched at home, in groups and in classroom settings. Viewers are encouraged to learn from the experiences shared, and consider how tactics could be adapted to their own contexts.
-Professor Sandra Fredman, Director of the
