Zero Fistula: Nigeria and the West African Region

Obstetric fistula, one of the most serious and tragic childbirth injuries, is a major public health issue worldwide — especially in developing countries. Nigeria in particular accounts for more than half the prevalence and incidence of throughout Africa, and unmet need for treatment could be as high as 98%. Ending fistula in Nigeria is critical to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), improving maternal and newborn health and ensuring universal access to sexual and reproductive health and rights as part of universal health coverage.This session aims to place obstetric fistula as a priority discussion point towards achieving the SDGs and ICPD Programme of Action, and will also make a case for renewed investments in prevention, treatment and reintegration of fistula survivors. This session will be convened by the Center for Population and Reproductive Health; the International Society of Media in Public Health; and Fistula Foundation Nigeria.

Summit Closing: A Global Call to Action

Over three days, the Nairobi Summit on ICPD25 will cover over 85 events that chart the path forward for different thematic areas under the ICPD Programme of Action. Stakeholders will announce major commitments to turn novel ideas and agreed best practices into concrete plans for progress. But what will it take to keep the momentum of the Summit all the way through 2030 and beyond? The Summit Closing will be a celebratory and reflective event during which participants have the opportunity to ask themselves, their communities, their governments and their leaders: “What can we do today, tomorrow, and over the course of the next decade, to ensure rights and choices are a reality for all?”

Human Rights for All: The Politics of Inclusion

Whose rights and choices have been fulfilled, and which groups and individuals have been left behind? Twenty-five years after the landmark agreement in Cairo, equality is still a goal rather than a reality. This is especially true for girls and women and people of diverse sexual orientations and gender identities, who often face barriers to their sexual and reproductive health and rights and heightened vulnerability to gender-based violence. This conversation will highlight the experiences of human rights defenders and their insights on what it takes to ensure radical and transformative change in the lives of those facing discrimination and exclusion. Expect provocative questions and proposed solutions to finally and fully realizing an inclusive ICPD Programme of Action.
