Maternal Mortality, Morbidity & Human Rights
16 SEPTEMBER, Palais des Nations
12:00-13:30, Room XXI
Join the Sexual Rights Initiative and our partner, the Coalition for African Lesbians for a Twitter chat this Thursday June 9th on Autonomy and Intersectionality: Why a special mechanism on sexual orientation and gender identity will set back movements on sexuality and gender at the Human Rights Council.
The panel will discuss key principles, approaches and tools for the promotion and protection of sexual health and human rights. Panelists will share experiences from the national and regional level and recommendations on some of the priority actions needed for the advancement of sexual health as well as address the integration of sexual health into SDG priorities.
This list has been compiled by the High-Level Task Force for ICPD. The task force is an independent body to provide a bold, progressive voice for advancing sexual and reproductive health and rights for all, especially for those living in poverty and otherwise marginalized, and to advance gender equality and the human rights of women and girls, and the rights and participation of young people.
