Access for All: Supplying a new decade for reproductive health

Press Release

Conference: June 22-23, 2011

Members of the reproductive health community will convene in Ethiopia’s capital, Addis Ababa, to celebrate a decade of struggle and success in ensuring that women and men around the world can choose, obtain, and use the supplies they need to ensure their reproductive health. 

The gathering will mark the 10th anniversary of the 2001 Istanbul conference, Meeting the Challenge, which many view as having given rise to today’s global reproductive health commodity security movement.

To celebrate this anniversary, the Coalition will host a two-day conference, Access for All: Supplying a new decade for reproductive health, where global leaders and other decision-makers will speak out for a reinvigorated effort to ensure RH commodity security and advance the aims of the Coalition’s HANDtoHAND Campaign.  

Access for All will form the centerpiece of a host of supply-related activities taking place throughout the week in Addis Ababa.
