Placing Gender back at the centre of Global Health and Development Policies

High Level Parliamentary Consultation
The Covid 19 pandemic has thrust global health onto the forefront of all global international processes, including the Italian Presidency of the G20 which started in December 2020 and will culminate in a G20 Summit on 30-31 October 2021.

In this framework, the Italian All-Party Parliamentary Group in collaboration with AIDOS, EPF and GPA, under the auspices of the Italian G20 Presidency, of the Chamber of Deputies and in partnership with UN agencies is delighted to invite you to attend the High-Level Parliamentary Consultation (HLPC) on “Placing Gender back at the centre of Global Health and Development Policies”.
As champions of sexual and reproductive health and rights, we greatly value your input and would be honoured if you could join us.
When: The HLPC will consist of two 90-minute webinars on Tuesday 22 June and Friday 25 June 2021, 15:00 – 16:30 CEST
Where: YouTube

Here is the YouTube link for session one – June 22 (Women's rights)

Here is the YouTube link for session two and three – June 25 (Global Health and Sustainable Development)

Session 1: Women’s rights. The pandemic risks rolling back decades of progress on gender equality. In many cases, the containment policies adopted, the restrictions, and the discontinuation of programmes have precipitated a degradation of women's rights.

Session 2: Global health. The Covid 19 pandemic has brought attention to global health as a common good. A number of recent initiatives such as Act-A, Covax and C-Tap can make a significant contribution to overcoming the pandemic and preparing for future health emergencies.

Session 3: Sustainable Development. COVID-19 could lead to a lost decade for sustainable development because, in the near term, the pandemic has increased the existing disparity between countries. In fact, some lack the necessary financial resources to combat the COVID-19 crisis and its socioeconomic impact. Medium-term risks are compounded by growing systemic risks that threaten to further derail progress in some sectors.
