Dear IFMSA family,

I am hereby opening the call for the IFMSA delegation to the 53rd Session of the UN Commission on Population and Development. It will take place in New York, USA from 30 March to 3 April 2020. It is an awe-inspiring opportunity to meet with international agencies, NGOs and UN member states and be part of a momentum towards meaningful youth involvement and sustainable development.

This email aims to inform you about all the procedures needed to apply to be a member of the IFMSA delegation. Please read it carefully till the very end. 


When: 30 March to 3 April 2020.

Where: United Nations Headquarters, New York City, USA.

What: A Population Commission was established by the Economic and Social Council in its resolution 3 (III) of 3 October 1946. In its resolution 49/128 of 19 December 1994, the General Assembly decided that the Commission should be renamed the Commission on Population and Development. In the same resolution, the Assembly decided that it, the Council and the Commission, should constitute a three-tiered intergovernmental mechanism that would play the primary role in the follow-up to the implementation of the Programme of Action of the International Conference on Population and Development, and that the Commission, as a functional commission assisting the Council, would monitor, review and assess the implementation of the Programme of Action at the national, regional and international levels and advise the Council thereon. 

Theme: The 53rd session in 2020 has the thematic focus of “Population, food security, nutrition and sustainable development.”
