Join us at Women DeliverFriday, 13 May 2016
We will be showcasing our expertise in accountability through our work in Nepal, Tanzania, Malawi and through our regional networks and platforms; MamaYe, Africa Health Budget Network, The Girl Generation, Maternal Death Surveillance and Response (MDSR) Action Network and African Health Stats.
Come and find out more about Options and what we do on Tuesday 17th May at 18:00, when we will be hosting a discussion on ‘Accountability for Health Results’ in room 178. There’ll be interactive booths, materials and brief talks about how country and regional accountability mechanisms help increase transparency and accountability for women and children’s health and rights.
We have also organised a plenary session on Wednesday 18th May from 13:30-14:30 in Room C1-M3 on ‘Using Accountability to Advocate for Girls and Women’. We will be looking at the ingredients needed to develop functional accountability mechanisms that monitor, review, and act against global and national commitments. This interactive session will provide participants with resources and advocacy messages to help build stronger health accountability mechanisms in their settings.
Our campaign to end FGM, The Girl Generation, is holding an interactive session with partner organisation The Orchid Project on ‘Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting – Achieving the Global Goal, Together’. The event will highlight prevalence of FGM/C in countries worldwide, and discuss approaches to tackling the practice. We will talk about how Women Deliver attendees can take advantage of the recently enshrined target of the Global Goals to hold their governments to account and work towards a world free from FGM/C.
Panellists from practising countries will share their personal experiences, bringing local activism to the global stage and during the session, audience members will be asked to share their best practices and demands they want to make of their policy makers.
You are invited to join the session on 17 May from 18:00 – 20:00 at the Bella Centre, room B3 – 5.
