Women Deliver Global Conference

The Women Deliver fourth global conference will be held in Copenhagen, Denmark from 16-19 May, 2016.

05 May 2016

The focus of the 2016 conference will be on how to implement the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) so they matter most for girls and women, with a specific focus on health – in particular maternal, sexual, and reproductive health and rights – and on gender equality, education, environment, and economic empowerment.

If you aren’t traveling to Copenhagen, you can register for Women Deliver Live—a broadcast-style digital program designed exclusively for those won’t be in the room, but belong in the conversation. The program will be packed with newsworthy issues, esteemed speakers and cutting-edge solutions, and will be built to highlight voices from the virtual audience.

Below we have put together some highlights relevant to RESYST and health systems strengthening.
