Over the past decade working at the forefront of gender equality and sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR), Women Deliver has gone through a number of evolutions. We began as a conference, became an independent organization for improving maternal health, then grew in size and scope to advocate for gender equality more broadly. Now, facing new challenges, we are prepared to evolve again.
Like many organizations in our space, we are facing a difficult funding landscape. The world is squarely focused on COVID-19 response and recovery, and funding for other issues, even those as interlinked with the pandemic as sexual and reproductive health and rights and gender equality, has diminished. At the same time, we have been going through a deep internal transformation to become a more equitable, inclusive, and global organization.
Our financial reality, paired with the time needed to continue to transform into an anti-racist organization, mean that we must recalibrate. Women Deliver has made the difficult decision to reduce the size of the organization, restructure operations, and focus on core advocacy priorities. 

Delivering on our commitments

Throughout this evolution, Women Deliver will honor our current commitments, maintain key priorities, deliver quality programs, and continue our strong advocacy for investments in girls and women. We will sustain the Young Leaders Program, engage in the Generation Equality Forum, continue our key advisory roles, plan the Women Deliver Conference, and see through our current commitments to Deliver for Good partners and Humanitarian Advocates.

Reimagining our future

When Women Deliver started our transformation we said, “To fully deliver on our mission of health and rights for all girls and all women, we must and will reexamine our past and reimagine our future.” At this critical juncture, Women Deliver will create a stronger foundation on which to build that reimagined future.

We welcome continued advocacy, partnership, and support from our partners, funders, Young Leaders, and the girls and women we work for and with. Together Women Deliver can and will advance a gender-equal world for all.
