On March 7th, CEPIA initiated the online course Cairo in Cotidiano: communication in the defense of women’s human rights, a partnership between CEPIA and the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), based on a project proposal approved in the III Call for Proposals of UNFPA’s On the Tracks of Cairo.

The course, which includes women from various regions of Brazil, as well as women from Mozambique and Angola, aims to disseminate and broaden the debate on the main points of the Cairo Action Plan, a result of the United Nations International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD), held in the city of Cairo in 1994; Strengthen the social communication capacity of young and adult women so that they act as popular communicators and promoters of rights in their various territories, within the framework of an inclusive development model that takes into account the plurality of women and their diversity; strengthen the defense of human rights, the effective access to these rights; stimulate advocacy actions for public policies that respond effectively to the consensus reached at the Cairo Conference, acting, therefore, as disseminators and promoters of these rights, thus contributing to the effective implementation of this Agenda.

Among the lecturers invited are: Júnia Quiroga, Deputy Representative UNFPA Brazil; Richarlls Martins, Jacqueline Pitanguy, Hildete Pereira melo, Fernanda Lopes, Miriam Ventura, Emanuelle Góes, Simony dos Anjos, Leila Linhares Barsted, Viviana Santiago and Laura Molinari
