The FSRH Hatfield Vision
By 2030, reproductive health inequalities will have significantly improved for all women and girls, enabling them to live well and pursue their ambitions in every aspect of their lives.
Maintaining good reproductive health and wellbeing has profound and positive long-term effects on the individual and society. However, we know that many women and girls experience poor reproductive health, with almost half of all pregnancies in the UK being ambivalent or unplanned.
This is why we have developed the FSRH Hatfield Vision, our blueprint outlining what needs to be achieved to improve the health of 51% of the UK’s population and tackle the inequalities that women and girls face across their lifetime.
FSRH Hatfield Vision
A Framework to Improve Women and Girls’ Reproductive Health Outcomes
"Women and girls in the UK face stark inequalities in their sexual and reproductive health. The FSRH Hatfield vision is an essential blueprint for improving care, supporting women’s reproductive health outcomes, and reducing inequities."
Dr Janet Barter, FSRH President
The Vision features priority goals and actions endorsed by 56 organisations in areas such as access to contraception, reproductive rights, menopause, menstrual health, cervical screening and maternal health outcomes in black women and women of colour. It has been developed in consultation with the sector.
The FSRH Hatfield Vision is a legacy to the late Jane Hatfield, the first CEO of FSRH, who worked tirelessly to improve the quality of reproductive healthcare that every woman and girl receives.

A note on language:
Within the FSRH Hatfield Vision we use the terms ‘woman’ and ‘women’s health’. However, it is important to acknowledge that it is not only people who identify as women (or girls) who access women’s health and reproductive services in order to maintain their SRH and wellbeing.
The terms ‘woman’ and ‘women’s health’ are used for brevity, on the understanding that trans men and non-binary individuals assigned female at birth also require access to these services. Delivery of care must therefore be appropriate, inclusive and sensitive to the needs of those individuals whose gender identity does not align with the sex they were assigned at birth.
