UN Headquarters, 405 East 42nd Street, New York, NY, USA
The Organization of African First Ladies for Development (OAFLAD) recently launched a new Strategic Plan for 2019-2023, with the advancement of the rights of girls and women in Africa at its core. Since 2012, African First Ladies have increasingly spoken out, mobilized and facilitated change towards gender equality and the empowerment of women. OAFLAD, in collaboration with UNFPA, will convene a high-level forum in the margins of the 74th United Nations General Assembly to address the unfinished business of gender equality and women’s empowerment in Africa.
