The Nairobi Summit on the ICPD25 recognizes the 25th anniversary of the groundbreaking International Conference on Population and Development, which took place in Cairo in 1994. During the conference, leaders articulated a bold vision regarding the relationships between population, development and individual well-being. Its Program of Action, adopted by 179 countries, recognized that reproductive health, as well as women’s empowerment and gender equality, are the pathway to sustainable development.

IAWG Co-Hosted Session
Delivering MISP in Emergencies
Wednesday, November 13 at 3:00 – 4:30 PM
Sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services are often overlooked and underfunded in emergencies. Yet in an increasingly unstable world, there is an urgent need to invest in reaching women and adolescent girls in humanitarian settings. In this session, panelists will discuss what has been learned from delivering high-quality SRH services to populations in the most difficult of environments – highlighting that the job can be done with sufficient preparation, coordination, and funding. This session is convened by Women Deliver; FP2020; IAWG.
