Liberia’s first female Vice President Chief Dr. Jewel Howard-Taylor was amongst about 13 Heads of States and Governments at the United Nations International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) 25 Summit held in Nairobi, Kenya which ran from November 12-14, 2019.
Held under the theme, “Accelerating the Promise”, the ICPD 25 Summit is a reflection of the progress made over the last 25 years in achieving the empowerment of women and girls across the world.


At the opening ceremony,  the first female Liberian Vice President read Liberia’s commitment statement  to the ICPD and affirmed the Government of Liberia’s   commitment to ensure ZERO UNMET NEED FOR FAMILY PLANNING INFORMATION AND SERVICES; AND UNIVERSAL AVAILABILITY OF QUALITY AFFORDABLE AND SAFE CONTRACEPTIVES BY 2030.
According to a dispatch from Kanya, Vice President Howard-Taylor recalled that in 2014, Liberia conducted its National Review process under the theme: ICPD beyond 2014; launched the AADPD/ICPD at 25, and reviewed the extent to which Liberia had fulfilled its commitment; thereby ensuring that NO ONE IS LEFT BEHIND.
