IVPA Member, Child Family Health International (CFHI) recently convened a forum at the United Nations on the Empowerment of Women.
Held on September 15th, the forum followed the July meeting of the United Nations Economic and Social Council, which concluded with member states stressing the need for greater investment in women and girls to advance gender equality and the empowerment of women worldwide – also the specific objective of the Millennium Development Goal #3.
The forum featured women who are assuming leadership roles in non-government organizations (NGOs), from high organizational roles to grass-roots levels, who talked about the challenges they face, and specific strategies for how they are succeeding.
The forum was a great success and CFHI has been asked to return and continue to support such important issues.
