Issues related to reproductive health are being increasingly recognised by the international community to contributing greatly towards eliminating gender-based health disparity. And in recent years, normative developments have proliferated both in the international and domestic arena. This thesis showcases the level of implementation of women’s right to reproductive health in Ethiopia. In so doing, it questions the international legal footings of this specific right. Implementation in this context is grappled with various obstacles such as balancing low economic resource setting with fulfilling economically demanding obligations; and/or eliminating entrenched harmful cultural traditions while enhancing acceptability of services. The research adopts a set contextual human rights indicators to sift the legal framework and health system of Ethiopia with a view to assessing the level of implementation. It identifies existing gaps and seeks to forward recommendations.
