Poverty eradication and sexual and reproductive health

In 2002, the European Commission agreed to fund a 42 month joint UNFPA-IPPF programme on sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services in 22 African, Caribbean and Pacific countries - which despite national and international efforts, has experienced difficulties in bridging the gap between needs and resources. The overall objective of the joint programme was to improve the capacity of ACP countries to deliver a basic package of SRH services to the target populations (the most vulnerable and under-served) through the public and non-profit sectors. Now it was the time to summarize and evaluate the project. On 14 - 15 October 2009, the joint end programme workshop took place in Brussels. The workshop was well attended by various high level representation from key decision makers such as donors and government ministers, the ACP Secretariat, ACP Ambassadors and the African Union. In addition to that, European Civil Society representatives participated, including The European Public Health Alliance - a member of Action for Global Health. The main objective of the workshop was to show the achievements and to highlight the ongoing need to prioritise SRH and rights provision in national health policies, as well as the profound role of the EU and its Member States in doing so.
