Women Deliver 2019 Mobilization Canada Action Areas & Legacies

The world’s largest conference on the health, rights and wellbeing of women and girls is coming to Canada and Women Deliver 2019 Mobilization Canada is using the momentum in the lead up to the conference to improve Canada’s leadership on gender equality.

Progress on gender equality is most needed in our action areas: 

  1. Gender Responsive Health Systems and Services 
  2. Gender-Based Violence 
  3. Women’s Economic Empowerment and Equal Opportunity 

CanWaCH is mobilizing with Canadians across the country to ensure real and lasting change comes out of Canada’s hosting of the Women Deliver 2019 Conference. As part of the Mobilization, we are calling on decision-makers to commit to long-term, sustainable and increased health investments to fill critical gaps. 

Health systems in Canada and around the world need to be gender-responsive and uphold the essential sexual and reproductive health and rights for women, girls and gender diverse people. CanWaCH has been working closely with our members and sector partners to develop a bold vision, known as the Thrive Agenda, for the future of Canadian leadership in women, adolescent and children’s health and rights around the world. This investment case shows health as essential to an empowered woman. The journey to empowerment starts early and it starts with good health.
