The Nairobi Summit is a critical global moment for sexual and reproductive health and rights in 2019 as it marks 25 years since the International Conference on Population and Development Programme of Action, and 50 years since the formation of United Nations Population Fund.

The UK Government are planning for high level attendance at this important conference. We will take every opportunity to advance sexual and reproductive health and rights for girls and women and are working with partners to play our part in ensuring a successful Summit.
