Female Condom Advocacy and Programming:
Breaking Down the Barriers!


August 29, 2009 - For those attending the NGO Forum on Sexual and Reproductive Health and Development in Berlin next week, the Center for Health and Gender Equity (CHANGE) - Prevention Now! Campaign, World Population Foundation and the Universal Access to Female Condoms (UAFC) Joint Programme invite you to attend the following session:

Female Condom Advocacy and Programming:
Breaking Down the Barriers!

Tuesday, 1st of September 2009, from 18:00 to 19:30,
in room Estrel Hall C.

Refreshments will be provided.

The female condom is currently the only existing prevention method designed for women to initiate that provides dual protection against HIV/STIs and unintended pregnancy. Despite high acceptability and wide benefits for women and men, female condoms remain underfunded, under-programmed and under-utilized.

At this session, panelists and participants will discuss the following questions: What is the current state of affairs of the female condom? What are the barriers for universal access? What are examples of successful female condom programming, policy advocacy and network-building? What can we do as NGO participants to make a difference?

Panelists

Ilze Smit, Advocacy Officer for Universal Access to Female Condoms Joint Programme, World Population Foundation

Musimbi Kanyoro, Director, Population and Reproductive Health Program, David and Lucile Packard Foundation

Kimberly Whipkey, Senior Associate for Advocacy and Outreach, Center for Health and Gender Equity (CHANGE) and Prevention Now! Campaign

We hope to all welcome you for this session.
