Resumen

BRIOZZO, Leonel et al. Impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the quality of sexual and reproductive health services. Rev. Méd. Urug. [online]. 2020, vol.36, n.4, pp.249-274.  Epub 01-Dic-2020. ISSN 0303-3295.  http://dx.doi.org/10.29193/rmu.36.4.12.

Background:

the COVID 19 pandemic may severely influence the sexual and reproductive rights and health agenda as a result of a decrease in the health services.

Justification:

Uruguay has a privileged situation in terms of sexual and reproductive rights. Therefore, we need to systematize and develop measures to prevent the impact of the covid-19 pandemic on these services in order to keep the highest standards of care in connection with sexual and reproductive rights, despite the current pandemic.

Objective:

to systematize the potential impact of the covid-19 pandemic on sexual and reproductive rights and health services and to promote strategies to identify and prevent this impact.

Method:

the impact of the covid-19 pandemic on sexual and reproductive rights is analysed from two perspectives: by considering the delay in the provision of health care services and by exploring its impact on each specific sexual and reproductive right.

Perspectives:

to promote positive discrimination actions at the sexual and reproductive rights services, while conducting epidemiological surveillance to contribute to the matching of sexual and reproductive rights services to the changes caused by the covid-19 pandemic on the health system and on society.

Palabras clave : COVID-19; Coronavirus infections; Sexual and reproductive health; Women’s health.
