October 31, 2019

In September 2019, the Spouses of CARICOM Leaders Action Network (SCLAN) hosted two side events during the 74th Session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in New York.

“Ensuring Access and Equity in Adolescents, Children and Women’s Health” was attended by First Ladies as well as other guests who support innovative initiatives to ensure access and equity to health at country and global levels by adolescents, children and women.

At the second event, SCLAN collaborated with New York University’s College of Global Health and HealthRight International in a panel discussion on the theme, “No health without mental health: Time to act and invest in adolescents.”

The goal was to highlight the current status of global mental adolescent health, best practices/innovations and the need for harmonised donor investment.
