Stephanie Linus takes ‘Dry’ to UN General Assembly
In continuation of her advocacy on maternal health issues in West Africa, filmmaker and UNFPA Ambassador Stephanie Linus recently joined other world leaders, policy makers and key stakeholders for strategic meetings at the 72nd United Nations General Assembly held in New York, USA.
This high profile event, which was graced by world leaders, including United States of America President Donald Trump, and Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari, is the main deliberative, policymaking and representative organ of the United Nations comprising of 193 Member States.
In her capacity as the UNFPA Ambassador for Maternal Health in West and Central Africa, Mrs Linus has reaffirmed her commitment to ending Fistula by mobilizing the support and commitment needed to rid the world of Fistula once and for all. The actress also recorded another milestone, as her advocacy movie on fistula awareness, DRY, was screened at one of the events in an audience comprising of several African leaders, first ladies, health experts and policy makers.
