Welcome to WAS Conversations, a monthly series dedicated to advance sexual health and rights for all. 

Session 6 was dedicated to Sexual Politics in the Global South, including sexual health and sexual rights in different countries. We invited 3 experts from South America, Western Africa and Asia to discuss sexuality and gender politics. Positive realizations as well as limitations and threats opposed to sexual rights are presented based on specific local situations.
