Strategic Advisory Committee and SADC Advocacy Meeting
29 April – 03 May 2019: Cape Town, South Africa
The success of this campaign depends on strong partnerships and collaborations with CSOs at regional, national and local level. IPPFAR/PSH believes that CSOs and partners are key to identifying the current gaps which hampers the domestication of the Maputo Plan of Action, ESA commitment and SADC SRHR strategy.
Therefore Partners in Sexual Health (PHS) invited CSO partners to a Strategic Advisory Committee and SADC Advocacy meeting to identify the gaps and jointly develop a SADC SRHR Advocacy Strategy on CSE and SRHR access.
Goals and Objectives achieved:
The participants developed a symmetrical implementation plan for all 8 SADC countries by CSO partners, outlined the research study in 8 SADC countries and developed a SADC Advocacy Strategy by CSO partners.
The meeting was structured around three outcomes, namely;
Discussion and agreement on the implementation plan - what to achieve and timelines.
Identified key priority areas for the research study to achieve the campaign goal.
Identified gaps, discussed and developed SADC SRHR Advocacy Strategy with a key focus on specific activities currently not implemented by various SADC CSO partners.
