KINGSTON, JAMAICA – Devon Gabourel of the National Family Planning Board (NFPB) and Dr. Pilar de la Corte Molina, of the United Nations Population Fund Sub-Regional Office for the Caribbean (UNFPA) met earlier this month to explore how the agencies could collaborate to engage Parliamentarians in Jamaica on their role to advance Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), particularly in regards to Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR). They also discussed other strategies that could be pursued to bridge legislative and policy gaps that challenge overall sexual and reproductive health outcomes for the population. Dr. Molina will present her recommendations to the NFPB’s multidisciplinary Legislation and Policy Review Committee later this month.
