This introductory chapter first sets out the purpose of the book, which is to equip practitioners of broadly defined disciplines that affect health to understand how medical knowledge, ethics, and law, including the part of law that encompasses human rights values, can interact with each other to improve reproductive and sexual health. The purpose is not so much to deepen understanding of origins and responses to reproductive and sexual ill-health, but rather to widen it. An overview of the subsequent chapters is then presented.

Keywords:   reproductive health, medical ethics, medical law, sexual health
