ICPD Beyond 2014

A short introduction
Welcome to the series of blog posts about the 47th CPD in New York, that will take place between 7th and 11th of April. Let me start by introducing the Dutch representation from Civil Society. In the coming week, we will use this blog to keep you posted on the latest developments concerning the negotiations, the side events they are organizing and other developments worth sharing.
The Netherlands is well represented with six organizations and their partners. These include RutgersWPF, CHOICE for Youth and Sexuality, dance4life, Simavi and STOP AIDS NOW!. Before departure to New York, we prepared our common Dutch CSO position, which we shared and discussed with the Dutch delegation. The Dutch delegation is headed by Lambert Grijns, our ambassador for SRHR and hiv/aids, and includes a youth representative from CHOICE for Youth and Sexuality, Stefan Hennis as well as other greatly experienced delegates. A delegation to be proud of!

The start before the official start…
As NGO representatives and government delegations are still finding their way to New York, getting over their jetlag, the tone of this 20 year anniversary of the ICPD has already been set. On Thursday 3rd and Friday 4th of April the so called informals started where all regional blocks and/or individual countries provided their first oral input on the Zero Draft of the outcome Resolution. The tone was set as conservative blocks and countries disagreed with any discussion on ‘new language’, while themselves proposing conservative alternatives. They seem not very pleased with (some of) the outcomes of the Global Review of the ICPD agenda as well as the recommendations by the Secretary General.

On the other hand, a number of countries from the Global South including Brazil, South-Africa and the Philippines to name a few have added great additions to the Draft Report. Also the Netherlands, either in like-minded construction or within the EU block, has contributed to strong inputs that can move the SRHR agenda forward. On Monday afternoon, official negotiations will start and at the end of the week, on Friday the 11th of April, we hope to have an outcome document that brings us a bit closer to realizing SRHR for all.


Before we are getting there, we use this weekend to reach out and strategize with likeminded organizations, young people and the delegations representing the countries of our partner organizations. We have a big task ahead, and we are ready for it! Keep you posted :)

Hi, I work in a communication company I want to share my testimony to the world, my name is Doris pinto, i am from united kingdom in belfast north ireland, I was a stripper in a club I got effected with HIV due to the nature of my job, In april 15 2013 i was tested positive to HIV, Believe it or not this is a true life experience. This is not design to convince you but its just a personal health experience . I never taught doctor Abija could ever get my HIV-AIDS cured with his healing spell, i have tried almost everything but I couldn't find any solution on my disease, despite all these happening to me, i always spend a lot to buy a HIV drugs from hospital and taking some several medications but no relieve, until one day i was just browsing on the internet when i came across a great post of !Michelle! who truly said that she was been diagnose with HIV and was healed that very week through the help of this great powerful healing spell doctor ,I wonder why he is called the great papa Abija, i never knew it was all because of the great and perfect work that he has been doing that is causing all this. so I quickly contacted him, and he ask me some few questions and so i did all the things he asked me to do, He never collected any money from me until I was finally cured, only to see that at the very day which he said i will be healed, all the strength that has left me before rush back and i becomes very strong and healthy, this disease almost kills my life all because of me, so i went to hospital to give the final test to the disease and the doctor said i am HIV negative, i am very amazed and happy about the healing doctor Abija gave to me from the ancient part of Africa, you can email him now for your own healing too on his email: spirituallighthealing101@live.com thank you doctor for healing me from HIV.
