Realising Gender Equality - Cancelled due to Coronavirus!!
06/05/2020 / MMS Conference - Hotel Kreuz, Bern
Official Announcement: Medicus Mundi Switzerland regrets to announce that our annual SRHR conference which was due to take place 6th May 2020 has to be cancelled due to the current outbreak of coronavirus.
MMS The year 2020 will mark several important milestones for gender equality and sustainable development, including the 25th anniversary of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, one of the most comprehensive blueprints for women’s rights worldwide. Gender inequality and gender norms impede progress on the global goal to achieve health for all. Today, not a single country can claim to have achieved gender equality. Multiple obstacles remain unchanged in law and in culture. This year’s MMS annual conference will seek answers on how we can realise gender equality and whether gender transformative approaches are really the answer it. (Photo: by Andre Halim on Unsplash)
