The Call of African Teenage Girls

Twenty-five years after the adoption of the the landmark ICPD Programme of Action, teenage girls in Africa still face myriad reproductive health challenges, despite policies and programmes already in place to advance SRHR. This session aims to give African teenage girls an international platform to share their stories and urge the global community to act. Through poetry, skits, the spoken word and a panel discussion, the session will showcase the progress these girls have seen and made, the constraints they still face in their daily lives and the solutions they have identified for themselves and their communities. The event is convened by FEMNET and member organizations.

Perseverance and Partnership: Key to Ending Gender-based Violence

What does it take to survive extreme violence and discrimination? Indeed, what does it take to change the world? This plenary will bring together leaders who have triumphed over violence and discrimination and now lead efforts to end gender-based violence and champion human rights. The facilitated dialogue will explore what made each of the panelists a leader: resilience, determination, commitment to justice. Examples of the importance of partnership will be shared to illustrate and catalyze further action from local to global level. How does one become a good partner and a collaborative leader? What will sustain partnerships and leaders in the struggle to end gender-based violence by 2030?

Tracking Commitments and Resources for Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights

The Nairobi Summit on ICPD25 is all about securing commitments from community, national and international stakeholders to advance the ICPD Agenda. This session will take the commitments one step further, identifying what it will take to ensure an effective mechanism for tracking these commitments and holding stakeholders accountable. The session will discuss ways to leverage and strengthen existing mechanisms and conclude with a proposal by partners on their options for tracking commitments that advance results, increase resources and uphold human rights. This event will be convened by PMNCH and WHO.
