Generation Now pre-conference at Women Deliver 2019
2 June 2019 | Vancouver, Canada

An Intergenerational Convening to Drive Action and Dismantle Barriers for Integrated HIV and SRHR policies, particularly for Adolescent Girls and Young Women

Generation Now: Our Health, Our Rights is a bold partnership between the International AIDS Society (IAS) and Women Deliver that contributes to achieving health and rights, particularly for adolescent girls and young women, by increasing political and financial investment across sectors in support of integrated HIV and sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) responses.

Generation Now organizes a series of pre-conference meetings to unite advocates, young leaders, academics, funders, policy makers, front-line healthcare workers from both the SRHR and HIV fields. The Generation Now 2018 pre-conference at the SRHR policies to shape systems and services that meet those in need, including adolescent girls and young women, a key part of achieving #healthforall.

Following the first pre-conference, the Generation Now small grants programme is providing young people the opportunity to build on the latest global discussions on integrating youth-friendly SRHR and HIV health services and ensuring access to education and information for adolescent girls and young women, informed by and amplifying their experiences and perspectives.

Building on the success of the partnership, the next iteration of the Generation Now pre-conferences will take place on 2 June 2019 at the Women Deliver 2019 Conference in Vancouver, Canada. Join us for a pre-conference meeting that is intersectional, innovative and intergenerational and identifies the products, platforms and policies to break silos and drive action for adolescent girls and young women.
