It has been exactly one year since the 2016 Women Deliver Global Conference brought together nearly 6,000 people from 169 countries

 all dedicated to making the SDGs matter most for girls and women. Since then, new friends have been made, partnerships have been strengthened, eyes have been opened, policies have shifted, and funding has accelerated. Below are a few concrete examples of conference outcomes, but we are looking for more! This is the time to share your accomplishments since WD2016. Take survey here >>



Some Examples:

Girls Not Brides Helped End Child Marriage in Trinidad and Tobago

"In the Women Deliver exhibition hall, Girls Not Brides connected with civil society representatives from Trinidad and Tobago who raised their concerns at the rates of child marriage in the country. We got to discussing how they could start lobbying their government and hatched a national campaign. Through coordinated advocacy, we pushed through a bill to end child marriage in the country!"
-Lewis Emmerton, Advocacy Officer, CHOICE for Youth and Sexuality (Formerly with Girls Not Brides)

Safe Delivery App Soared to New Heights

"By participating in Appy Hour at Women Deliver 2016, we received tremendous media exposure and met new partners who will help get our mobile app into the hands of 20,000 health workers by the end of 2018, thereby securing a safer birth for 2 million women and babies."
-Anna Frellsen, Maternity Foundation

GreenChar Earned Substantial Media Coverage 

Since winning first place in Women Deliver's 2016 Social Enterprise Challenge, GreenChar — a clean energy social enterprise in Kenya that provides alternative cooking fuel to curb respiratory disease and save the lives of girls and women — has become the darling of top-tier media. Since presenting in Copenhagen, GreenChar has earned features in Forbes, Quartz, and Huffington Post. That means 103 million more readers aware of a crucial health issue and a trailblazing solution.

Since you left the Women Deliver 2016 Conference in Copenhagen one year ago, have you done something – or done something differently – to advance the health, rights, and wellbeing of girls and women?
