On Global Village this weekend

On the show this weekend we start by looking at why An estimated 2,639 girls are estimated to be at risk of undergoing FGM (or female genital cutting) here in Ireland.  Triona Pender, Programme Manager of ActionAid Ireland and Ola Bakinson, AFTER Project Facilitator and AkiDwA Community Health Ambassador join Dil to discuss  the issue.

Why is lifesaving and life altering medication so expensive? Thats what we ask Diarmaid McDonald advocacy manager of UNITAID and STOPAIDS.  He is discussing the issue next Wednesday when access to medicines Ireland holds their first event.

Finally the Government look set to recognise Traveller ethnicity within weeks, an Oireachtas committee indicated last  Thursday. Bernard Joyce, director of the Irish Traveller Movement and Oein DeBhairduin Irish Traveller Movement member join Dil in studio to tell us what it would mean to them.

 Tune in from 7pm on Saturday  or better still join in the conversation!
