PAHO Hosts Meeting on Women's Reproductive Rights

The Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) is hosting a meeting on April 6 and 7 to develop strategies and initiatives that advance women's reproductive rights in PAHO Member States.

Organized in collaboration with Planned Parenthood of America and the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), the meeting brings together experts on women's reproductive health to review mandates, strategies and best practices with a view to strengthening health sector activities in this area. Particular attention will be focused on family planning, oral emergency contraception, and prevention of unplanned pregnancies.

The meeting is being held in response to recommendations by PAHO's Technical Advisory Group on Gender Equality and Health, which urged new action in this area and called on PAHO's Gender, Diversity and Human Rights Office to spearhead such efforts with active leadership from the ministers of health of Member States.
