IWHC believes that women's health and rights are central to social and economic justice and global well being. When the fundamental rights of women are respected and their health and educational needs are addressed, then communities as well as nations are stronger, safer, and more stable. We work in three ways to build political will and influence policies of governments, donors, and international agencies to secure girls' and women's sexual and reproductive health and rights:* we provide professional assistance and financial support, $1.5-2.0 million annually, to local organizations in Africa, Asia, and Latin America;* We inform professional and public debates in the United States and abroad through policy analyses, reports on effective programs and strategies, and media outreach;* We advocate at intergovernmental conferences, and collaborate with the UN Population Fund, the World Health Organization, the World Bank, and other international agencies to generate essential policies and resource flows that benefit women and their families.
