Abstract

Reproductive health can present health practitioners with ethical problems because of the complex interaction between cultural practices, the laws of the country and individual personal preferences. In particular, the problems of pregnancy, sexually transmitted infections, family planning, sexual violence, and domestic abuse require a good knowledge of the laws of the country and the culture in which they operate. The practitioner should at all times respect the patient’s autonomy and serve their best interests, whilst keeping in mind the legitimate interest of their partners, spouses, parents or guardians.
