Caribbean women meet on reproductive health

Story PictureArriving on the same plane as the Queen’s Baton were a group of young women from all over the Caribbean who will participate in a series of discussions designed to help Belizean women have a greater say in their reproductive health. According to Jackie Guzman from the Pacific Institute of Women’s Health, based in Los Angeles, California, the idea is to bring different countries together to come up with a single programme of empowerment.

?Pretty much we are uniting leaders and giving them some youth empowerment workshops and workshops specifically related to reproductive rights, so that they can take these skills and build a regional agenda with Caribbean Youth and be doing some advocacy around that in their countries and also together as a region.”

The conference will be held at the Belize Biltmore Plaza and includes young women from all over Belize, as well as delegates from Barbados, Jamaica, St. Lucia, and Trinidad and Tobago.
