Live from New York, It's Advocacy in Practice!

In 2007, IWHC launched Advocacy in Practice, or AiP, to help build the capacity and leadership skills of young leaders.  Twelve young people from ten countries met last week in preparation for the 54th Commission on the Status of Women, which will evaluate implementation of the  milestone Beijing Platform for Action.

The Aipers discussed the significance of global agreements on women’s health and rights,  effective messaging on sexual and reproductive health and rights issues, and advocacy strategies at the UN and in country they can put into practice following the training.

In addition to a special video greeting, our Aip participants have sent a few photos:
