Today and for the next three days, I have the privilege of attending the 2nd Women Deliver conference in Washington D.C. This event gathers thousands of representatives from governments, NGOs, private sector and international agencies to discuss women’s rights, reproductive and maternal health, and related issues. Women Deliver “works globally to generate political commitment and financial investment for fulfilling Millennium Development Goal #5 — to reduce maternal mortality and achieve universal access to reproductive health”, and I’m very excited to share some of the content of this conference with readers of this blog.
I will be blogging about the conference for UN Dispatch, so make sure to check back for videos, interviews and analysis in the coming days.
I also really encourage you to follow the conference via live webcast on the Women Deliver website: http://www.womendeliver.org/conferences/-2010-conference/webcast/
