World First: Citizen Dialogue at World Health Assembly 2015

May 20, 2015
The first of its kind, our groundbreaking Global Dialogue between citizens and governments takes place during the 2015 World Health Assembly.

It builds on the numerous Citizens Hearings that have now taken place in some 30 countries, conveying recommendations from many thousands of citizens and district and national leaders across Africa and Asia. Get a feel for what these Hearings are like by watching our Citizens Hearing Film and learning more at www.citizens-post.org.

This special session will launch a series of global events focusing on accountability for reproductive, maternal, newborn, child and adolescent health (RMNCAH). It will be a constructive dialogue between community representatives and their respective Member States, moderated by a multi-stakeholder panel.
