ACT!2030 participated in the 70th World Health Assembly in Geneva in May, and we were lucky enough to participate in the 3rd annual Global Citizens' Hearing, "Citizen-led accountability to achieve health for all: adolescents as agents of change". This event was organised by IPPF, Save the Children, the White Ribbon Alliance, World Vision and supported by Canada, and co-sponsored by the governments of Afghanistan, Haiti, Kenya, Mozambique, Namibia, Nepal, Nigeria, Portugal, Slovenia, Sweden and Uruguay as well as UNAIDS, UNFPA and PMNCH. It was great to see so much high level support for youth-led accountability! We were represented on this panel by Jona Turalde from ACT!2030 Philippines. You can read her full intervention below.
