Civil Society Dialogue: Ireland's Unfinished Business, November 6th
25 years on from commitments made by Ireland on sexual and reproductive health and rights under the International Conference on population and development (ICPD), and in a 'post-repeal' Ireland - how do we really measure up?
In advance of a global summit in Nairobi this November examining these issues, the Irish Family Planning Association (IFPA) supported by Irish Aid is convening a gathering on Wednesday November 6th from Irish NGOs, women’s organisations, community groups, global development organisations, youth leaders, sexual and reproductive health rights activists and government policy makers in Ireland to discuss ongoing and emerging issues around sexual health and reproductive rights for all.

The day will include:
- An address by Minister for Children and Youth Affairs, Katherine Zappone TD
- Two panel discussions to provoke thought and highlight key issues:
- Unfinished Business: Addressing policy gaps in sexual and reproductive rights in Ireland
- Unmet Needs: Considering experiences in accessing supports and services
- Most importantly, a facilitated dialogue between NGOs, activists, youth leaders and government policy-makers will be held after each panel, where views and contributions will be captured from all participants.
