The Crown Princess was welcomed by Cabinet Secretary for Foreign Affairs of Kenya, Dr. Monica Juma.
ICPD 25 refers to the action plan adopted at the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) in Cairo, Egypt, which addresses women’s rights over their own bodies.
The Nairobi Summit aims to examine the progress made since the Program of Action redacted in Cairo in 1994.
“We have come to Nairobi because we refuse to accept good progress as good enough.— Nairobi Summit (@NairobiSummit) November 12, 2019
We insist that a promise made must be a promise kept to girls and women, boys and men, to everyone.”

I ask myself why is it that sexual & reproductive health & rights remain controversial when it’s so obvious that they are essential for the health and wellbeing of all – especially women & girls. @UNFPA Goodwill Ambassador— UNFPA Asia & Pacific (@UNFPAasia) November 12, 2019
