The UK was pleased to be represented at the recent ICPD+25 review meeting and was delighted there was broad consensus in support of women’s sexual and reproductive health and rights.

UK representation at the UN Commission on Population and development will be decided in due course. We would encourage all UN Member states to attend at the highest appropriate level.
