South African Government’s Commitments for the Nairobi Summit on ICPD25

This year marks the 25th anniversary of the ground breaking International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD), which took place in Cairo in 1994.

At that conference, 179 governments adopted a Programme of Action, recognising that reproductive health, women's empowerment and gender equality are the pathway to sustainable development.

Some of the commitments made by the South African government fall under

  • Achieving universal access to sexual and reproductive health as part of universal health coverage (UHC)
  • Address gender based violence and the harmful practices of child, early and forced marriages and female genital mutilation.
  • Mobilise the required financing to finish the ICDP Programme of Action and sustain the gains already made.
  • Draw on demographic diversity to drive economic growth and achieve sustainable development.
  • Uphold the right to sexual and reproductive health care even in humanitarian and fragile contexts.
