Gina Wharton, Advocacy Advisor at the European Network of the International Planned Parenthood Federation sits down with us to discuss the future of EU-Africa relations, the importance of human development and why establishing a partnership based on fairness and equality is the only way forward.

Want to know more about the European Union’s relationship with African, Caribbean and Pacific Countries (ACP), the role of Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) in these partnerships, and how a genuine partnership of equals must fully replace the “Help for Africa” narrative?

Tune in to the second episode of our Talking Development podcast with the European Network of the International Planned Parenthood Federation’s (IPPF EN) Gina Wharton to learn more!

The ‘help for Africa’ narrative is part of an old discourse which finds its roots in post-colonialism (…) Today, the ‘aid for Africa’ has been replaced by an equality of partners, a ‘partnership of equals’
