SURINAME: Breakfast Meeting on LARCS on Word Population Day

SURINAME: Key stakeholders such as PAHO, IPPF Suriname Foundation Lobi, the Ministry of Public Health and Medical Mission joined us in a breakfast meeting on the 10th of July at UN House Suriname to celebrate World Population Day, under the theme "Family Planning is a Human Right”.

This is a follow up to last year’s celebrations which engaged stakeholders in a dialogue on the introduction of Long Acting Reversible Contraceptives (LARC) in Suriname. At the breakfast meeting, stakeholders exchanged experiences, plans and ideas for the implementation of the LARCs initiative. A core group has now been formed with responsibility for drafting an implementation road map.
