Access to Contraceptive Services and Information

The Centre for Health Law, Ethics, and Technology (CHLET) at Jindal Law School undertook a study on the right to contraceptive services and information for women in Haryana, India. The primary objective is to delineate whether the state of Haryana is fulfilling its obligations to provide women with access to contraceptive services and information. It presents findings from a multi-stakeholder analysis and human rights assessment of the various policy, social, and cultural barriers that impede women in Haryana from realizing their fundamental right to contraceptive services and information. By conducting both a multi-stakeholder analysis and a human rights assessment, this report provides a nuanced depiction of the policy, social, and cultural barriers to contraception. This analysis also contributes to a deeper understanding of the state's obligation to ensure the right to contraceptive services and information.
