The United Nations Secretary General’s Independent Accountability Panel for Every Woman, Every Child Every Adolescent (IAP) is presently finalising its 2020 Report which addresses accountability for women’s, children’s and adolescents’ health and rights in the context of Universal Health Coverage and Sustainable Development Goals. The 2020 Report features five national case studies – one of which is in Georgia. The Report will be launched at the High-level Political Forum in New York in July.
The Georgia Case Study on Public-Private Partnership accountability in Universal Health Care for women’s, children’s and adolescents’ health in Georgia is being researched and prepared in partnership with David Tvildiani Medical University. The case study work is being led by Professor Giorgi Pkhakadze and is near its final stages (draft report enclosed). The IAP aspires that the case study can serve as one of the inputs to Georgia’s Voluntary National Review process for the SDGs and will also support Government’s leadership to advance the progress for women’s, children’s and adolescents’ health and rights.
It is critical that there is a high-level multi-stakeholder dialogue to critique and make input to the case study recommendations before finalisation. The original plan was for a Multi-stakeholder in person Dialogue in Tbilisi but because of the COVID 19 crises this has been changed to a ZOOM Dialogue which is tentatively planned for 5 May 2020, 14:00 Tbilisi Time.
You have been identified as a valuable participant for this dialogue and we would be most grateful if you can indicate your availability and willingness to participate and bring your perspectives to the ZOOM dialogue.
For the Zoom call, the details are as follows:
