Abstract and Keywords
Sexual and reproductive health is an important aspect of individual health and well-being, as well as a significant determinant of public health. This chapter uses a public health ethics lens to illuminate three examples of moral complexity arising in sexual and reproductive health: social justice, contested views of harms and benefits, and self-determination. The chapter also provides an overview of the four chapters in this dedicated section of The Oxford Handbook of Public Health Ethics. The section’s chapters provide a focused examination of public health ethics in the context of STI control measures, contraception, abortion, and pregnancy-related services.
