Notes: 
Review, Network Winter 1997: This Bill of Rights meets the urgent need for a set of women-centred guidelines governing the development, distribution and use of contraceptives. It grew out of a long process of thinking and analyzing on the part of Northern and Southern women concerned about the harmful effects of many pharmaceuticals on women's lives. Beginning with a list of ethical principles, the document goes on to offer specific guidelines for research, development, testing, evaluation and monitoring. It also provides clear direction to funders and policy makers for implementing health services and planning reproductive health research and programs.
