From April 7 to 11, 2014, the 47th session of the Commission on Population and Development (CPD) took place at the UN Headquarters in New York. Attendees focused on assessing the progress made in implementing the Programme of Action of the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD). Three GOJoven Alumni advocated to protect young women’s rights during the meeting:
Wendy Aguilar, of GOJoven Honduras
Ingrid Galvez, of GOJoven Guatemala
Nancy Leiva, of GOBelize
Download the CPD47 Resolution Document to see the outcomes of the 47th Session of the Commission on Population and Development. The document affirms the need to promote gender equality and recognizes:
“that health is a precondition for economic and social development and [is aware that] sexual and reproductive health and reproductive rights are central to the realization of social justice and to the achievement of global, regional, and national commitments for sustainable development.” (emphasis added)
Many Congratulations to these three GOJoven Alumni for their efforts and input into the CPD47 consensus!
