2012 Regional Consultations

Regional Consultations (2012 - 2013)

In 2012, Women Deliver, in partnership with regional organizations, held invitation-only regional consultations for 100-150 participants each in sub-Saharan Africa; Latin America and the Caribbean; and Asia. We also held a Middle East and Northern Africa (MENA) consultation at the Women Deliver 2013 conference with 60 experts from more than 20 countries. Policymakers, researchers, experts, and advocates discussed regional success stories, lessons learned and pathways for future progress in maternal and reproductive health, with a focus on the International Conference on Population and Development’s (ICPD) Plan of Action and Millennium Development Goal (MDG) 5.

For each consultation, we disseminated video, materials and an outcome report. The discussions at each consultation helped shape the agenda for Women Deliver 2013 and were also delivered as key recommendations to the United Nations Secretary-General’s office.

Young people are critical stakeholders, and our consultations are designed to incorporate their input. A small group of 15-20 youth advocates took part in pre-consultation workshops at our sub-Saharan Africa and Latin America and the Caribbean consultations. Participants learned advocacy strategies, identified areas for cross-sectoral collaboration and networked through a series of interactive sessions. They also attended each consultation, to provide a youth perspective.
