At 2:30 p.m. EST this Friday, January 8, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton will make a major speech commemorating the 15th anniversary of the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) and will reaffirm U.S. support for achieving the ICPD goals. As you know, the ICPD put forth a vision and framework for achieving sustainable development and reducing global poverty that made gender equality, human rights, and comprehensive reproductive health a priority - things we continue to advocate for today in U.S. foreign assistance.
Be the first to witness this important event. The speech will be live streamed on www.icpd2015.org starting at approximately 2:30 p.m. EST. In addition, a transcript and video of the speech will be posted at www.icpd2015.org.
