Women’s Health and Rights, first: Toward Achieving UHC in Africa

The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), the International Family Planning Federation (IPPF), and the Japanese Organization for Cooperation in Family Planning (JOICFP) are proudly hosting a TICAD7 Official Side Event titled “Women’s Health and Rights, First: Toward Achieving UHC in Africa” on 29 August 2019.

Every day, about 830 women are losing their lives due to preventable causes related to pregnancy and childbirth. 99% of these women are from developing countries, including Africa. Moreover, when looking at causes of death among women aged 15 to 19, pregnancy and childbirth related ones top the list.

Health is a human right. We shall never achieve “health for all” without fulfilling the rights of women and youth living in developing countries. This is only possible by promoting Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR), including issues such as maternal and child health, ending child marriage and other traditional practices that are harmful to men, women, and children, and creating a gender-equal world.

The global community is working to achieve Universal Health Coverage, where anybody can receive quality health services, when they need them, and at an affordable price. Japan, who has a long experience of providing a national health insurance scheme, leads the promotion for UHC around the world including countries in Africa. A high-level discussion on UHC is planned at the UN General Assembly this fall.

So, the question is: How much is SRHR acknowledged in the discussions for UHC?

Parliamentarians from Japan, representatives of international organizations, including the UN and IPPF, and grass-roots activists from Africa join the table to discuss on how to realize the SDGs basic concept to “Leave No one Behind” through UHC. The talk will begin from understanding how SRHR is crucial to UHC. Panel with conclude the session with a statement towards the ICPD25 Nairobi Summit held in November. Ms. Ai Tominaga, JOICPF Ambassador, will be the MC. Those who are interested in gender equality, health promotion, and SRHR are most welcome.
