PPD welcomes the Coalition to its Rabat Membership Meeting
13th December 2007
John Skibiak joined country delegates from around the world at the Partners in Population and Development's (PPD) 12th Annual Board and Membership meeting in Rabat, Morocco. Highlighting supply security as one of PPD's five organizational priorities, participants praised a recent initiative by China to provide US$6 million in RH supplies, equipment, and training to six PPD members, including Kenya and Uganda, in the next three years. China also announced its intention to convene a meeting next year of financial ministers and parliamentarians to discuss South-South investments in population and RH.
The meeting concluded with the adoption of a Declaration that reiterated PPD's commitment to expanded access to high-quality generic supplies and their desire for greater collaboration with WHO, UNFPA, and the Coalition. Contact Harry Joosery for more details.
