Leaving No One Behind: How to Prioritize Girls’ and Women’s Rights in UHC

Tuesday, April 16, 2019

9:00 AM EDT



Universal Health Coverage holds the transformative promise to provide all people, everywhere with access to the quality health services they need, without financial hardship. But this vision of leaving no one behind will not be fulfilled without a strong focus on the health and rights of girls and women. To put the “universal” in Universal Health Coverage, governments must advance a policy agenda that recognizes and prioritizes gender equality and the unique health needs of girls and women, including their sexual and reproductive health and rights.

This webinar will showcase global and national efforts to prioritize gender equality and girls and women’s health and rights in UHC policy and decision-making. Advocates will share strategies, messaging, and key moments to help stakeholders from around the world connect to and drive forward a UHC movement that meets the needs and realities of girls and women.

Speakers Include:

  • Susan Papp, Managing Director of Policy & Advocacy – Women Deliver
  • Shannon Kowalski, Director of Advocacy and Policy – International Women’s Health Coalition
  • Eglė Janušonytė, Liaison Officer for Sexual and Reproductive Health & Rights Issues – International Federation of Medical Students’ Associations
  • Lethia Bernard, Senior Research & Policy Analyst – PAI
  • Amos Mwale, Executive Director – Center for Reproductive Health and Education
  • Solange Hakiba, Deputy Director – Rwanda Social Security Board
