Twenty-five years ago, at the International Conference on Population & Development (ICPD), the world agreed, by consensus, that sexual and reproductive health is a human right. The world agreed that no mother should die while giving life. The world agreed that women are the equal of men, and that gender-based violence and discrimination have no place in the modern world.
The Nairobi Summit is an inclusive forum, bringing together a chorus of voices from countries and communities around the world. It will include heads of state, faith leaders, businesses, community organizations, advocates, and young people.
The first of the three day summit will address important topics including building financial momentum to tackle the issues of maternal mortality, sexual and reproductive health and rights; accelerating action to end violence against girls and women; demographic dividend; and the role private sector and businesses play in helping to advance women and girls.
Gender equality. Respect. Inclusion. An end to violence against women and girls, as well as harmful practices like child marriage. A foundation for life and love.
Generation Breakthrough, a landmark educational programme in Bangladesh, tackles all these issues and more.
Coordinated by the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), in partnership with government, civil society organisations and others Generation Breakthrough teaches young girls and boys key skills and lessons that dismantle harmful stereotypes and negative behaviors.
The long-term result: A more gender-equal society, where girls and women are enabled to better fulfill their potential, boys and men understand and act on their responsibility for helping make this happen - contributing to the achievement of rights and choices for all.
This programme represents some of the topics, including harmful practices against girls and women, that will be addressed at the upcoming Nairobi Summit on ICPD25 on 12-14 November, 2019 in Nairobi, Kenya.
Other relevant footage and ready to publish videos will be available here.
