As a young Zambian women, I have bee involved in developmental issues within my country. This includes HIV/AIDS, gender, Sexual Reproductive Health and Human Rights issues. I believe that efforts must be combined in order to combat the challenges that our nations and continents are facing. Therefore information is never enough and so we need to continually update, share and take action on what is happening globally. In fostering National development, I wish to be kept abreast in as far as realising the MDGs are concerned, forging links in terms of global partnerships, identifying new developments and strategies for addressing Sexua; reproductive health, youth concerns , HIV/AIDS among other developmental issues are concerned. Finally, discussions play a very vital role in development in the sense that, one is awarded an opportunity to interact with different individuals of different calibre on a global scale. Therefore, I feel being part of this communication Initiative Network will enhance my leadership skills as well as help me contribute effectively to the development of my country.
