About the Commission

The High-Level Commission, established on 17 September 2020, is charged with keeping the 1,250 commitments to women’s health and rights made at the November 2019 Nairobi Summit on ICPD25 stay on track.

The Commission will monitor and report on progress towards fulfilling the commitments, particularly those contained in the Nairobi Statement on ICPD25. It will also make recommendations for removing bottlenecks so that the sexual and reproductive health and rights community maintains its momentum towards a world of rights and choices for all.

The Commission is chaired by H.E. Mr. Jakaya Kikwete, Former President of the United Republic of Tanzania, and H.E. Michaëlle Jean, 27th Governor General of Canada. Members include former heads of state and grassroots activists and youth.
