Members of the UK All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) traveled to Sierra Leone to embark on a study tour focusing on reproductive health and family planning from 5 November to 13 November. The delegates visited a variety of services at various levels of the health system, with actors including the British High Commission, UK Aid, WHO, NGOs and the Government.
The APPG on Population, Development, and Reproductive Health is a cross-party platform for Peers and MPs in the UK to raise awareness on key development and rights issues, with a specific focus on population and sexual and reproductive health and rights. The group was established in 1979 and is one of the oldest APPGs in Westminster. It has more than 70 members with representation from all major political parties, and from both Houses in the UK Parliament.
