The third Global Women Deliver Conference has opened this week. This year, it is taking place close to home: in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Women Deliver is "a global advocacy organization bringing together voices from around the world to call for action to improve the health and well-being of girls and women." The conference will host thousands of participants from all over the world, including government leaders, policymakers, healthcare professionals, NGO representatives, corporate leaders, and media outlets. Women Deliver believes that "the most valuable investment is one in girls and women. The Women Deliver 2013 conference is the most important date in the international population and development calendar. With the 2015 Millennium Development Goal deadline rapidly approaching, the time is now to deliver for girls and women. Women Deliver 2013 will serve as a global platform for ensuring that the health and rights of girls and women remain top priorities now, and for decades to come."
The conference is bringing together many powerful and imaginative forces and RACHA is looking forward to seeing what comes from it!
