This project aims to improve the health, wellbeing, and enjoyment of rights of women and girls, with a focus on sexual and reproductive health and rights. It seeks to reach those most in need by targeting vulnerable women and girls, including those who are living in fragile states and humanitarian contexts. The project is designed to build a global advocacy momentum on behalf of women and girls to address the root causes of poverty and discrimination. It mobilizes youth to take leadership roles in ensuring the realization of their rights and raises awareness of poor health, gender-based violence, and discrimination affecting women and girls. The project also seeks to identify the gaps in gender-disaggregated data and disseminate existing evidence to influence decision-makers to integrate the gender aspect in programs and services. Project activities include: (1) conducting global advocacy on gender equality; (2) supporting community level advocacy; (3) filling data gaps on the health, rights, and wellbeing of women and girls; (4) training youth advocates; (5) convening the 2019 Women Deliver conference to be held in Vancouver; and (6) supporting advocacy on the health and rights of women and girls in humanitarian settings.

Expected results 

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) enhanced influence on policies and investments for gender equality and girls’ and women’s health, rights, and wellbeing, including sexual and reproductive, health, and rights (SRHR), by advocates and influencers globally and nationally; (2) increased global and national use of gender equality data and gender equality evidence in the investment case for gender equality and girl’s and women’s health, rights and wellbeing, including SRHR by advocates, influencers, enablers, and public and private sector decision-makers; and (3) enhanced participation and influence of young women and men (youth), particularly young women, on policies and investments for gender equality and girls’ and women’s health, rights, and wellbeing, including SRHR, globally and nationally.
