– Enhanced role of leadership in protecting the rights of key populations to access SRH and HIV services
Running under the theme: “Guaranteeing SRHR for Key Populations in the Post-2015 Development Agenda: A call for Leadership and Accountability for Improved Health Outcomes in ESA”, the dialogue will be attended by representatives of the African Union, SADC, Key populations, civil society organisations, National AIDS Councils, relevant Ministries and funding agencies.
