UAP brought a bipartisan delegation of senior congressional staff to New York in August, 2014 to meet with UNFPA staff and learn more about the UN’s work on international family planning and reproductive health. Staff attended a welcome dinner with Kathy Calvin, representatives from Merck for Mothers, and UNFPA Deputy Executive Director Kate Gilmore, then joined Laurie Shestack Phipps at the U.S. Mission and Diane Stewart from UNFPA the next day for a briefing on IRH/FP in the post-2015 agenda.
