Meanwhile … back in SL

This #WorldPopulationDay, we are marking 50 years since UNFPA started operations globally and 25 years since the landmark conference on population and development (#ICPD25) which recognized that reproductive health and women’s empowerment are intertwined, and both are necessary for development.

In commemorating these milestones, UNFPA #SriLanka released a publication titled ‘Perspectives’, which reflects on five decades of advancements in sexual and reproductive health in Sri Lanka. The publication features stories from #women and #girls who have benefited from this advancements, as well as from champions in Sri Lanka who have driven positive change. We are pleased to have handed over the first copy of the publication ‘Perspectives’ to Prof. Maithree Wickremesinghe, at the UNFPA@50 event last night.
