UNFPA Explainer Provides Overview Of International Conference On Population And Development

United Nations Population Fund: Explainer: What is the ICPD and why does it matter?
This post provides an overview of the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) and its role in advancing women’s reproductive health and rights, noting, “This November, governments, advocates, health organizations, women’s and youth activists, and others will gather in Kenya for the Nairobi Summit. There, they will seek clear commitments that will advance the goals of the ICPD and secure the rights and dignity of all. We know how to meet the sexual and reproductive health needs of virtually all people. … What we are missing are the resources, political will, and commitments to achieve this goal. Without action now, this year, we may lose the momentum to realize these rights for all” (3/29).
