Civil Society Legislative Advocacy Centre (CISLAC) invites you to its 2nd Side Event during the UN 59th session on the Commission for the Status of Women (CSW), as part of its fulfillment of its mandate as an organisation with the UN ECOSOC status.
This year’s event is very important because CISLAC is collaborating with Partnership for Advocacy in Child and Family Health (PACFaH) to promote civil society advocacy to government on Child and Family Health in Nigeria. Though the general theme for this year’s event borders on Implementing the Beijing Platform for Action in Africa, CISLAC intends to utilize this window of opportunity to explore certain underlying themes of the Beijing Platform as it relates to the health of women and children, which it believes when fully implemented will go a long way towards achieving the Beijing Platform for Action in Nigeria, specifically and generally in Africa.
PACFaH is a consortium of seven (7) indigenous non-governmental organizations in Nigeria working to address government of Nigeria’s reluctance to fulfill existing commitments on policies, budgets, and guidelines implementation of child and family health and also pushing for transparency and accountability in the budgetary processes on health.
This year’s event will feature panelists from different works of life addressing issues on family health, the implementation of the National Health Act, Post 2015 Agenda and women in leadership position and legislative roles on Beijing Platform for Action in Africa.
The itinerary below refers:
“Post 2015 Agenda Imperative for Implementing the Beijing Platform for Action in Africa”
Date: Monday 16, 1015
Venue: 777 UN Plaza, 44 St by 1st Ave UN Quarters, NY 10017
