The year 2019 was a special one for UNFPA as we marked the 25th anniversary of the 1994 International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) in Cairo, and 50 years of UNFPA! The ICPD25 Conference discussed the unfinished business of the ICPD, marking 25 years since I79 countries, including Botswana, adopted the Programme of Action that recognised the relationships between population, development and individual well-being. For Botswana, the 2019 Nairobi Summit  mapped out a new 10-year vision, with fresh commitments on sustainable development. The leader of the Botswana delegation, Mr. Richard Matlhare- Coordinator of National AIDS and Health Promotion Agency shared Botswana’'s 4 commitments for the ICPD25 as highlighted in the Commitment Booklet.
