In 1994, a monumental meeting, the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD), took place in Cairo, where 179 governments adopted the Programme of Action, which paved the way for global and local action to ensure sexual and reproductive health and rights for all people.

25 years later, the global community is coming together on the 12-14 November at the Nairobi Summit on ICPD25 to take stock of the progress made and to gather expanded commitments to push for and invest in the health and rights of all.

Women Deliver welcomes the Nairobi Statement on ICPD25: Accelerating the Promise and urges nations and stakeholders to sign on in support and to make further bold commitments, because access to modern contraception and sexual and reproductive health services, including safe abortion, is the bedrock of gender equality, economic development, and progress for all.
How will you use your power to help drive progress for girls and women?
ICPD will bring together diverse voices to discuss and unite around the Programme of Action. We asked Women Deliver Young Leaders, Humanitarian Advocates, and Deliver for Good Campaign Partners to share their thoughts on how they will use their power during the Nairobi Summit to create a more gender equal world.
