Empowering Women and Girls for Health: Women Deliver
Thirty-one MSH staff joined thousands of decision-makers, leaders, advocates, health professionals, and media gathering to focus on our most valuable investment: women and girls. The Women Deliver 3rd global conference discussed the importance of empowering women and girls, securing their health and rights, and promoting their essential leadership role in the Post-2015 agenda.

MSH listened and led on family planning, reproductive health, universal health coverage, fragile states, leadership, and advocacy conversations throughout the conference in person and online.
Six conference sessions featured MSH panelists and moderators.
MSH President Dr. Jonathan D. Quick delivered a "To The Point" Talk on UHC as a women's issue.
MSH sponsored: a partner reception with Population Services International; a dinner panel discussing the challenges of delivering maternal, newborn and child health (MNCH) services in fragile states; and an internal technical meeting to discuss MSH's MNCH and family planning strategies.
The Global Forum on Cervical Cancer Prevention, which MSH is a partner organization on, brought together global cervical cancer prevention leaders, advocates, academics, and policy makers for an informative, consensus-building conversation.
As part of the Women Deliver Conference events, MSH brought six U.S. Congressional staffers from key House and Senate offices on a week-long study tour to Kuala Lumpur.
