ON THE ROAD TO NAIROBI

Newsletter

The International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) took place in Cairo in 1994. 179 world leaders reached a consensus and adopted a Programme of Action, which enshrined individual reproductive rights as a basic human right. For the first time, the ICPD shifted the focus from demo-graphic targets to human lives. Leaders promised universal access to reproductive health services and information, and vowed to reduce maternal deaths and end gender-based violence. The ICPD agenda also recognized women empowerment as a prerequisite for sustainable development and called upon governments to invest in young people, end poverty, and protect migrants and displaced people.

Fact Sheet

Approximately 165,0001 people have been displaced to communities within Al-Hassakeh, Ar-Raqqa, Aleppo and Deir-ez-Zor Governorates. Of the displaced population, the estimated number of women of reproductive age is 41,250. The mobility dynamics in the area are still very fluid as IDPs continue to change their location. Many have been displaced multiple times from one area to another, further increasing their vulnerability. Protection partners formerly present in Ras al Ein, Tel Abyad and Ein Issa have diverted programs and resources to respond to the protection needs of the newly displaced population in Tal Tamer, Al-Hassakeh and Raqqa areas. Stocks of food and medicine, as well as necessary pipelines for bringing aid into the area and medical referral pathways to move those in need of adequate care facilities, are in place to meet many of the immediate needs, and partners continue to scale up their response across all areas
