Media personnel push for ICPD agenda

3 September 2019
Human interest stories on GBV and RH issues

UNFPA and Studies and Economic Media Center wrapped up 3-day training in Aden for more than 20 journalists from Aden, Al Dahleh, Abyan and Lahj governorates. The training aimed to equip the participants with skills on how to write human interest stories on gender-based violence and reproductive health issues. Media personnel were introduced to the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) historical agenda where RH and GBV were recognized for the first time. They were also briefed on the Nairobi Summit.  

 Earlier in August, a similar training concluded in Taizz governorate where 25 media personnel were targeted.  

In commemoration the 25th anniversary of ICPD, UNFPA is running a series of training for media covering 15 governorates across the country aiming to create a large network of journalists who can contribute towards the advancement of the ICPD agenda in Yemen.
