FILM - Afghan Cycles

“If we do not stand up for ourselves, nobody will.” Tahira, Bamiyan Cycling Team Member, Afghanistan Following a new generation of young Afghan women cyclists, Afghan Cycles uses the bicycle to tell a story of women's rights - human rights - and the struggles faced by Afghan women on a daily basis, from discrimination to abuse, to the oppressive silencing of their voices in all aspects of contemporary society. These women ride despite cultural barriers, despite infrastructure, and despite death threats, embracing the power and freedom that comes with the sport. Afghan Cycles spans a four-year period, from 2013 to 2017. As the stories of these brave women develop and evolve, the security situation in Afghanistan worsens. Women bear the brunt of this shift, and as Afghanistan deals with growing security threats, it jeopardizes these female riders and Afghan women as a whole.

Inclusive action: Realizing HIV prevention for adolescent girls and young women in their diversity

Progress in stopping new HIV infections has been unequal and uneven. But we know that strong investment in HIV prevention can make a difference – particularly for girls, their families and their communities, with amplifying effects for societies and economies at large. During this session, expect to hear personal stories and compelling evidence from a range of speakers, demonstrating the progress made on HIV prevention and also highlighting areas for improvement, all with the aim of making integrated HIV and sexual and reproductive health services and rights (SRHR) a reality for adolescent girls and young women in all their diversity. The session will reinforce goals and commitments towards reducing the global number of adolescent girls and young women newly infected with HIV to fewer than 100,000 and articulate concrete commitments towards integrating HIV and SRHR in line with the commitments made for ICPD25. The event will be convened by the Global HIV Prevention Coalition.

Young Parliamentarians

Young leaders are key to driving transformative social change. This session shines a light on youth participation in political systems and notes that Young Parliamentarians have a key role to play in advancing the ICPD agenda. This session will take an intergenerational and interactive approach and will foster dialogue among parliamentarians of a range of ages while soliciting feedback and questions from attendees. The aim is to identify lessons learned that can advance all parts of the ICPD agenda in sub-national, national and global financing frameworks. The young politicians will also share ideas on how they can shape opportunities for the advancement of sexual and reproductive health within their mandate. Expect young parliamentarians to make concrete, life-changing commitments that can be enacted through parliamentary policy and fiscal and oversight instruments. The event will be convened by UNFPA in collaboration with the Global Parliamentary Alliance (GPA), an initiative of the European Parliamentary Forum for Sexual and Reproductive Rights (EPF), the World Health Organization and IPU.

Mental Health and Psychosocial Support in Crisis: A Basic Necessity

Conflict, violence and disasters have devastating effects on people’s minds and bodies, and these harms are often mutually reinforcing. This session will address the acute need for commitments from countries and organizations to enable and enhance high-quality mental health and psychosocial support during and after disasters and conflicts. Participants will identify barriers to implementing and receiving mental health and psychosocial interventions in humanitarian emergencies, and they will exchange best practices and lessons learned, paving the way forward for more healthy and holistic interventions.
