AFIDEP’s Senior Knowledge Translation Scientist, Dr. Bernard Onyango will represent AFIDEP at a dialogue that is among the various events being held in the lead-up to the ICPD25 Nairobi Summit. The dialogue, titled, “What’s Changed in Middle-Income Countries in Southern Africa?” will take place on 11 September 2019 in Namibia. The First Lady of the Republic of Namibia, Monica Geingos, is expected to join stakeholders in reflecting on the last 25 years, future opportunities, as well as challenges in driving the population and development agenda.
The meeting will focus on the experience of five middle-income countries (Mauritius, South Africa, Botswana, Namibia, eSwatini) and one high-income country (Seychelles). These countries face varied but unique population and development challenges from the rest of sub-Saharan Africa.
