2019 will be remembered as the year of the Nairobi Summit ICPD+25, marking the 25th anniversary of the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD). In 1994 in Cairo, 179 governments adopted the concept of ‘reproductive rights’ and subscribed to a landmark Programme of Action (POA) empowering women and girls to take their own decisions, for their own benefit as well as for the benefit of their families and communities.

In Mozambique there is increasing attention to addressing the sexual & reproductive health (SRH) issues faced by adolescent girls, including unplanned pregnancy, HIV/STIs, violence, and early marriage. A key issue for girls that is often not addressed in adolescent SRH programmes is menstrual health management (MHM).

The Summer Schools 'Health & Migration' ‘Sexual & Reproductive Health & Rights’ will take place 5-16th of July 2020 in the vibrant City of Ghent, Belgium. Registrations are open for bachelor and master students from all around the world who are interested in expanding their knowledge about global issues alongside students from different faculties and different cultures.

Twenty five years ago the International Centre of Reproductive Health (ICRH) was founded by Professor Marleen Temmerman, as a response to the International Conference on Population and Development in Cairo in 1994. It was established first at Ghent University, but today ICRH has three sister organisations in Belgium, Kenya and Mozambique with strong collaborations with other partners worldwide. A quarter of a century later, this had to be celebrated, so in November there were events planned in Mombasa, Kenya and Ghent, Belgium.

Unsafe abortion is a major cause of maternal mortality in Mozambique, and in 2014 the country liberalised its law in relation to abortion, significantly increasing the conditions under which it is legal to obtain a safe abortion.
