During January and February 2014, SPW has watched the development of anti-homosexuality bills in Nigeria and Uganda, as well as of anti-prostitution cleansing in Brazil and crackdown and China. In the same period, however, there have been positive new in relation to abortion rights in Bolivia and Uruguay (in Spanish). SPW is also following the global process leading to Cairo +20.
