Sexual and reproductive health (SRH) does not only involve the reproductive years but emphasizes the need for a life-cycle approach to health. Attainment of SRH depends vitally on the protection of reproductive rights; a set of long-standing accepted norms found in various countries and internationally agreed human rights instruments.

The purpose of this report is to elaborate some of the elements of SRH, and recommend actions to improve SRH in WA municipality of the Upper West Region of Ghana. To ensure that greater demand for RHSs is generated towards creating a healthier nation.SRH comprised of disparate elements including safe motherhood, family planning, child health, harmful traditional practices, women empowerment, elimination of gender-based violence, etc. From the study, it was revealed that prenatal and postnatal care services are used more than the other Reproductive Health Service (RHS), this draws from the fact that most of the RHS and products identified in the municipality are peculiar to women. The Random Utility Model helped in analyzing this decision.It was also evident that the higher the level of education attained by the people in Wa municipality, the greater the usage of RHS and products. This report necessarily builds on and reinforces the analyses and recommendations made on the demand for SRH.
