Planning Minister MA Mannan attended the opening ceremony as the chief guest on the gallery premises on Saturday. UNFPA Bangladesh representative Asa Torkelsson also was present at the event as the special guest.

Nairobi Summit 2019 marks 25 years of the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) since its first organisation in 1994 in Cairo. As a developing country, Bangladesh has achieved a lot of success in different areas, especially on human rights, population, sexual and reproductive health, gender equality, and sustainable development.

This photo exhibition will put a human face to the ICPD agenda in Bangladesh, which is expected to generate momentum ahead of the Nairobi Summit to accelerate the progress of the ICPD agenda.
