The 2017 State of World Population report, ‘’Worlds Apart: Reproductive Rights and Health in an Age of Inequality” identifies several forms of inequalities. As mentioned in the report, “whether a woman is able to exercise her reproductive rights depends in part on whether she lives in a city or rural area, how much education she has and whether she is affluent or poor.” The Maldives is no exception. But some of the challenges Maldives face are unique. This paper focuses on inequalities faced by the people of Maldives as described by those involved at various levels of providing sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services.
