VENUE: Bella Center, Copenhagen, Denmark
Women Deliver’s conferences have become some of the world’s biggest global convenings to focus on the health, rights, and well being of girls and women. Building on the successes of Women Deliver’s three previous global gatherings-in London in 2007, in Washington in 2010, and in Kuala Lumpur in 2013-the 2016 Conference will bring together world leaders, advocates, policymakers, journalists, young people, researchers, and leaders of corporate companies and civil society to showcase what it means and how it works when girls and women become the focus of development efforts.
The conference, which will be held in Copenhagen, Denmark from 16-19 May 2016, will be the largest gathering on girls’ and women’s health, rights, and well being in more than a decade, and one of the first major global conferences following the launch of the SDGs. The focus of the conference will be on how to implement the 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.
