Click here for today's video blog from our Citizen's Voice studio at the IPU conference where I lead the team of reporters including Nsinda Elman, Ugandan WRA Volunteer and journalist.
The 3rd Citizen's News broadcast brings you up to date reporting on the draft resolution entitled: Access to Health as a Basic Human Right: the Role of Parliamentarians in addressing Key Challenges to securing the health of women and children.
And features interviews with Theresa Shaver, President of WRA, Helene Gayle, President of CARE USA and Hon Sylvia Ssinabulya MP, Uganda.
Nearly 650 Members of Parliament from over 120 countries are attending the 126th Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) Assembly from March 31st - April 5th, in Kampala, Uganda. This year's theme is Parliaments and People: Bridging the Gap -- and the health of women and children is high on the agenda.
White Ribbon Alliance (WRA) is reporting direct from the Assembly following the progress of the IPU resolution Access to Health as a Basic Right: The Role of Parliaments in Addressing Key Challenges to Securing the Health of Women and Children.
From our Citizens' News studio we will be gathering statements of support from parliamentarians, interviewing key figures and raising the voices of citizens, linking our daily updates to national and global media.
Please help us in sharing the Citizen's Voice from the IPU Assembly where parliamentarians are meeting to discuss current international political, economic and social concerns.

About the WRA Citizen's Voice Web blogs:
March 31 to April 5 2012, the White Ribbon Alliance for Safe Motherhood (WRA) is producing a 5 min video blog daily from our studio at the 126th IPU Assembly in Kampala (Uganda).
We are interviewing key figures in attendance, raising the voice of Citizens and supporters; connecting delegates at the IPU with media in their country and globally via a short video blog highlighting the day's events.
The WRA is at the IPU to promote the fact that access to health is a basic right and to discuss the role of Parliamentarians in addressing key challenges to securing the health of women and children.
