Event at CPD to train youth advocates

The Alliance and its Link Up consortium partners are training youth advocates to get their HIV & SRHR-related needs on the post-2015 agenda during the 47th Commission on Population and Development this week.

This year's theme is the “Assessment of the status of implementation of the Programme of Action of the International Conference on Population and Development”. 

In keeping with the theme, the findings of a global review of the Programme of Action - which lay bare the strong links between sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR), HIV and human and economic development - will be presented at the meeting.

To coincide with the CPD meeting, global policy partners in the Link Up project - along with Resurj, the International Women's Health Coalition, the International Federation of Medical Students' Associations and UNAIDS - are organising a side event on 8 April in New York. 

The session aims to strengthen the capacity of young people to advocate for greater attention to their HIV and SRHR-related needs in the post-2015 framework.
