In April 2019, the International Conference on the Great Lakes Region’s Regional Training Facility (ICGLR-RTF) organized a regional meeting entitled “Sensitization Meeting for Police Chiefs and National Reproductive Health Heads in the Great Lakes Region.” Held in Kigo, Uganda, the meeting brought together chiefs of police and heads of reproductive health departments (Ministries of Health) from nine ICGLR member states, namely: Burundi, Central African Republic, Democratic Republic of Congo, Kenya, Republic of Congo, South Sudan, Sudan, Uganda, and Zambia. The meeting was sponsored by the Population Council, Kenya. Sauti/VOICE Program Brief 2 describes the preamble to ICGLR-RTF’s meeting resolutions and the ten resolutions made. Regional resolutions will be employed as an advocacy tool by ICGLR-RTF and its partners (including the Council) to promote utilization of the police emergency contraception provision model in the region, including in refugee contexts.
