The World Health Organization (WHO) has, as one of its strategic lines of action, sexual and reproductive health (SRH). For this purpose, it carries out a strategic approach to strengthen SRH policies and programs in order to fulfill the ideals of the Millennium Development Goals. In line with this, the WHO has implemented programs, action plans, and strategies on different aspects that are part of the SRH: Global Strategy of the Health Sector against sexually transmitted infections, WHO Recommendations for childbirth care, WHO Maternal Health Program, Recommendations on selected practices for contraceptive use, Responding to intimate partner violence and sexual violence against women, WHO Resolution on female genital mutilation, etc. At present, from different organizations, associations, and scientific societies, an important task is being carried out to adapt the care provided in SRH to care that is marked by scientific evidence and the recommendations based on it. There is an increase in interest, both in research and by clinical professionals, in SRH; this increased interest is found in all disciplines (medicine, nursing, psychology, social work, physiotherapy, etc.) and from all levels of care (primary and specialized), as well as in the approach that is made of this from, including prevention, promotion, treatment and recovery. This thematic collection is open to all topics related to SRH.
