CSA will be represented at the upcoming International Conference on Family Planning (ICFP) which will be held in Bali, Indonesia. Our team will consist of Hottensiah Kiriko, Vidalyne Omollo, Imali Ngusale and Jacob Ochieng. The 4 will be making presentations on different abstracts which were successfully accepted after they made submissions earlier this year and participating in a number of activities to be held there.
The presentations made will be on Using advocacy to increase political commitment and financial investment to FP; the case of Busia County in Kenya and Contraceptive uptake among 15-19 year old adolescents in Kenya -lessons learned from the World Starts With Me program. There will also be round table caucus meetings where CSA will feature in as they highlight their role in family planning when working with adolescents. The CSA representatives will also get the opportunity to offer mentorship to other young people around the world while they are at Indonesia.
We wish them the best and hope that they will fully capitalize on this global opportunity and establish working relationships that will be in line with the CSA vision of a society where the sexual and reproductive health and rights of young people are universally realized and enjoyed. More updates will be given when they are back.
