In 2021, Women Deliver reached further toward becoming what an international NGO of the 21st century should be, driven by the unwavering belief that guaranteeing the health and rights of all girls and women, including access to the full suite of sexual and reproductive health information and services, is the cornerstone of a just, equitable, and gender-equal future.
Specifically, we focused on:
>> CREATING SPACE FOR COLLECTIVE ACTION THROUGH COALITIONS: In close partnership with women’s rights organizations, including feminists and feminist movements in low- and middle-income countries, we formed and supported coalitions around the world to set new agendas, co-create solutions, and hold leaders accountable to commitments to advance gender equality.
>> CHAMPIONING YOUTH ADVOCATES: We listened closely to Women Deliver Young Leaders and Alumni to address their needs and concerns. Today, our work is grounded in the deep recognition that advocacy and collective action must center adolescent girls and youth, especially those with marginalized identities, as designers, experts, and leaders, alongside traditional decision-makers and powerholders.
>> CONVENING TO DRIVE LASTING CHANGE: We amplified the impact of convenings by connecting under-represented groups to platforms where they can advocate directly with policy and decision-makers. These efforts deepened our engagement in alliances, networks, and advisory groups.
Thank you for joining us in changing what we cannot accept. Your belief in and support for Women Deliver is what makes pushing back against the anti-rights movements that threaten us all possible.
