Afya na Haki’s Litigating Reproductive Justice in Africa (LIRA) Program

Applications are being accepted for a fellowship through Afya na Haki’s Litigating Reproductive Justice in Africa (LIRA) Program. Through proactive, evidence-based, and cooperative litigation for access to SRHR at national, sub-regional, regional, and international levels, the Program seeks to foster an environment in which Africa embraces reproductive justice.




In order to highlight the injustices of the framework for reproductive choice, such as the various power relations and the social economic realities that shape the sexual and reproductive lives of both men and women, Reproductive Justice focuses on a social justice approach. The majority of SRHR litigation in Africa is currently rights- and choice-based, and it focuses on the negative duties that states have to individuals rather than to society.
