Today and tomorrow, the United Nations (UN) and World Health Organization (WHO) are conducting the African regional consultation on Women, Children and Adolescent Health in Johannesburg, bringing together representatives from all over the continent. Yesterday, Sonke Gender Justice was part of the civil society consultation, and also part of media workshops facilitated by WHO. Remmy Shawa, Sonke's Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) Acting Portfolio Manager moderated a session on utilising new digital media tools to communicate about, and to, young people, with respect to health. Sonke’s Nkonzo Khanyile, a trainer with our MenEngage Africa programme, and two youth participants, Hope Phelane and Nyakallo Mdlalose, also participated in this digital media session and are part of the media delegation at the consultation which is seeking to amplify youth voices and concerns.

Today and tomorrow, Sonke will be participating in the stakeholders' consultation that will guide the UN on its 2016-2030 global health strategy. Government and civil society representatives, including Sonke, and other health experts will contribute to the development of the global understanding and priorities regarding health issues facing women, children and adolescents in Africa, as well as the health-related challenges and opportunities facing the continent. Remmy will be part of the Working Group on Child and Infant Health, and will share lessons learned at Sonke through our @MenCare programme.

AN EXAMPLE OF HOW WOMEN & GIRLS ARE DENIED INHERITANCE RIGHTS:

Sibongile, from Swaziland, lost her home and possessions as a result of gender discrimination and poverty. When her husband died of AIDS, his family forced her and her children out of their house. After struggling to survive, she found a job as an AIDS activist and now works to secure the equal rights of women and children in her country.
