We are pleased to announce the release of Global Goals, Local Action: Advancing homegrown solutions for girls and women through regional advocacy caucuses. This report highlights the exciting advocacy outcomes from eight regional advocacy caucuses held at the 2016 Women Deliver Conference in May in Copenhagen, Denmark. PATH and Women Deliver co-sponsored the caucuses, and each caucus convening was designed and led by a local NGO from the region.

The West African Regional Advocacy Caucus

In partnership with PATH and Women Deliver, HACEY Health Initiative will host the West Africa caucus at the Women Deliver 4th Global Conference in May 2016. The caucus will bring together diverse stakeholders to discuss major priorities and strategies for strengthening political and financial commitments to girls’ and women’s health and well-being in West Africa. Emphasis will be on improving reproductive, maternal, newborn, child, and adolescent health (RMNCAH) and gender equality in SDG implementation and accountability efforts, and building on ICPD+20 and Beyond and Beijing+20 processes.
