11th May 2023
It is with great pleasure that we invite you to register for the RHSC’s 20th General Membership Meeting taking place 16-20 October 2023 at the Kempinski Hotel Gold Coast City Accra in Ghana. The two-day Membership Meeting will be preceded by three days of exciting and eventful meetings hosted by the Coalition’s Implementing Mechanisms.
Reuniting a resilient RH supplies community
The 20th General Membership Meeting (GMM) has been long anticipated; it will have been more than four years since we met in person in Kathmandu. In this time, our community has faced the challenges of COVID-19, funding instability, and volatility throughout the ecosystem. We will reflect on the impact on money, markets, and movement, drawing lessons from our sector’s response, and celebrating our unique special resilience.
Fortifying the Coalition for the future
As we explore our changing ecosystem and navigate the last two years of the RHSC’s current 10-year strategy, we will look at how to strengthen the relevance of the Coalition over the next 10 years. We will ask big questions in Accra:
- where has RHSC been successful and resilient?
- where do we need to change?
- how do we continue to work on the inclusion of our members?
- how do we chart our course forward together?
Examining our financial landscape & our future security
We will consider both the immediate and longer-term financing trends and adaptation opportunities for sexual, reproductive, and maternal and menstrual health supplies in terms of donor funding, domestic resource mobilization, and new, innovative financing mechanisms. We will study how RH supplies are integrated into universal health coverage and health insurance mechanisms.
Celebrating Ghana’s special resilience
We could not have the support of a more fitting co-host than the Ghana Health Service; the country has seen a steady year-on-year increase in its contraceptive prevalence rate, has committed to FP2030, and has launched a comprehensive Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn, Child and Adolescent Health and Nutrition Strategic Plan. Ghana has much to share on challenges and adaptations from COVID-19 as well as significant experience and insights on the inclusion of family planning within its National Health Insurance Scheme as well as innovative maternal health medicines within their national guidelines.
So come to Accra. Come for the full week: reinforce old friendships, forge new ones, and enjoy the networking possibilities our GMMs are celebrated for. The drumbeat starts now, as we prepare to greet you with the warmest welcome ever.
