(CPD 48) Panel Discussion and Launch of a Special Issue of Global Public Health: Introduction by Gita Sen

This CPD48 Side Event, co-sponsored by DAWN, and the Governments of the Republic of Philippines and the Kingdom of Denmark, on Monday, April 13th, 2015 at the UN Headquarters in New York. The Special Issue of the journal, Global Public Health is the product of a two-year long project, coordinated by DAWN, which has brought together a number of key researchers and analysts in the SRHR field to write papers and commentaries on what has been achieved so far on SRHR, and where we need to go from here as we move into the post 2015 world. It takes a fresh look at the evidence from low and middle income countries on progress made towards the SRHR agenda, and how this agenda should guide and be integrated into the framing of sustainable development goals (SDGs).

This work was carried out with the aid of a grant from the International Development Research Centre (IDRC). The speakers were: 
  • Dr Babatunde Osotimehin (UNFPA),
  • Dr Carmen Barroso (IPPF/WHR),
  • Saida Ali (IWHC),
  • Dr Gita Sen (DAWN),
  • Dr Antonio Juan Perez (Philippines)
