In June of 2018, the Future Planning Initiative held a two-day multi-stakeholder dialogue on ‘Galvanizing Canadian Leadership on Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR)’ to advance political and financial support for SRHR, beyond 2020. The meeting brought together key senior national and international SRHR experts and champions from civil society, private foundations, UN agencies, and Canadian government officials from Global Affairs Canada (GAC) and other departments with the following objectives:
- To reflect on the commitments Canada has made to global SRHR to date;
- To develop and deepen strategies that accelerate progress in neglected areas of global SRHR;
- To strengthen and make the case for increased investment in these areas;
- To strategize on how best to sustain political and financial leadership that leverages Canada’s unique contribution to global SRHR.
