JOICFP NEWS. 1995 Jun; (252):7.In order to implement the goals set forth in the Cairo International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) in its programs, the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) held a meeting of its Ad-hoc Advisory Panel on Gender, Population and Development on April 5 and 6, 1995, in New York. Akiko Domoto, a Member of Parliament in Japan and an activist on women's issues and population, was invited to chair part of the meeting of the 16-member panel, which meets every two years and was established in 1986 to advise UNFPA on policies, strategies, and programs designed to mainstream gender concerns in population activities. The panel is composed of population, gender, and development experts from both developing and developed countries. The meeting was comprised of seven sessions that covered issues such as information, education, and communication (IEC); reproductive health and family planning; and collaboration with nongovernmental organizations (NGOs). Domoto chaired the session on IEC and centered discussion on how to implement gender in these areas. The result of the meeting was a draft document of recommendations to UNFPA that included suggestions about collecting and analyzing gender-differentiated data, providing information and training to more fully utilize NGOs, and focusing on impacting men's attitudes and behavior in regard to reproductive health, family planning, and gender equality.
IPPF OPEN FILE. 1994 Apr; 1.The third preparatory committee (PrepCom III) for the September 1994 International Conference on Population and Development will be held in New York during April 4-22. Nongovernmental organization (NGO) representatives will take the opportunity to lobby and brief government delegates on draft documents at this final such meeting before the conference convenes in September. Preparations thus far point to an increasing international recognition of individual needs. The International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) hopes PrepCom III will ensure that this recognition is reflected in the final recommendations to the conference and that government delegates work with NGOs to provide an appropriate framework for Cairo. A variety of IPPF and FPA staff will take part in the government and NGO forums, with IPPF Secretary General Halfdan Mahler addressing the opening session. On April 5, Dr. Mahler will release the new IPPF report on adolescent sexuality, Understanding Adolescents, highlighting the negative consequences of ignoring the sexual and reproductive health needs of young people. Programs need to treat young people with respect and dignity. The report profiles some programs which have been successful in locales around the world. IPPF hopes to convince decision makers that their political and financial commitment is needed to secure the health and well-being of today's and tomorrow's young people. Another report on the unmet need for family planning services among marginalized populations in Uganda, El Salvador, Ghana, Palestine, and the Philippines will be presented at a reception hosted by Dr. Sai and Dr. Mahler.
