“…Last week’s citizens’ hearing [in Kampala, Uganda,] was one of several that have been organized around the globe in recent months to garner support for reproductive health and childcare. … On Thursday, the recommendations from the hearings will be presented to the U.N. secretary general, Ban Ki-moon, by a Ugandan maternal health advocate, Faridah Mwanje Luyiga. Next week, activists will attend the World Health Assembly — the world’s highest health policy-setting body — to advocate for decent health care for women, children, and adolescents…” (Mwesigwa, 5/14).
