By BBN Staff: The Spouses of CARICOM Leaders Action Network (SCLAN) led by Chair, Kim Simplis Barrow hosted a side event in the margins of the United Nations General Assembly in New York today.
The event entitled: “Ensuring Access and Equity in Adolescents, Children and Women’s Health” is designed to bring together First Ladies, Spouses of Heads of Government, private sector and UN Representatives to facilitate knowledge exchange which can contribute positively to progress in key areas such as the reduction of gender-based violence, teenage pregnancy, cervical cancer and HIV/AIDS/TB and Malaria.
This initiative also aims to build upon the long- term efforts set forth by the global community including former UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s Every Woman, Every Child Global Movement and the Global Strategy for Women’s Children’s and Adolescents’ Health (2016-2030).
