Seventh Meeting, London 2007
The Seventh Meeting
On April 27-28, 2007, the Coalition convened in London for its seventh semi-annual membership meeting, hosted by Coalition partner International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF). The membership meeting was the culmination of many smaller gatherings held earlier in the week, including Working Group sessions, a Communications Task Force discussion, a reception for members of London’s reproductive health (RH) community, and on Thursday, April 26, the Executive Committee meeting.
At the two-day membership meeting, over 50 participants exchanged ideas and information with the aim of finalizing the Coalition’s three- to five-year Strategic Plan. Participants reviewed and revised the latest draft of the plan, which had been developed by a task force of Coalition volunteers, with input from the Executive Committee and general membership. The discussion was informed by breakout sessions divided across and along working group lines, and a series of panel presentations that placed the RH supplies challenge within the context of the changing environment for development assistance. Finally, participants were updated on new developments in the World Health Organization (WHO) Prequalification process.
