RMA WG update: November 2007
13th December 2007
The venue and dates of Project RMA's first Annual Global Civil Society Meeting, originally scheduled for January 2008 in Addis Ababa, have been changed. The new dates will be announced shortly.
Meanwhile, Project RMA has announced its list of priority countries, namely Burkina Faso, Ghana, Tanzania, Uganda, Bangladesh, Mexico, and Nicaragua. Countries were selected in a collaborative effort, based on need and readiness for supply advocacy, existence of civil society networks and convergence with complementary work undertaken by other Coalition members, partners, WG initiatives and the Global Programme. The list of countries is pending final confirmation by the IPPF regional Office and Member Associations.
Finally, Project RMA will also announce within the next two weeks the recipients of its first round of small grants to global and regional NGO networks to engage in RH supplies advocacy. This support is designed to foster partnerships with regional networks in Africa, Asia Pacific, and Eastern Europe and support their efforts to either initiate or further advocacy among their membership organizations and regions.
