Country-level Champions: Zambia Drives Progress for Women and Girls

As the new global development agenda takes shape, we must consider global priorities for maternal and child survival and what is needed to drive progress for women and girls at the country level.

In this conversation, we will explore the impact of public sector leadership for reproductive health, opportunities to build support across ministries and other public offices, as well as meaningful engagement of civil society in informing policy and funding priorities. Zambia is a prime example as it tackles the most pressing needs for women and girls including family planning and reproductive health, child and early marriage and gender-based violence. 

Lunch will be served.

Please respond to caroline.hopper@aspeninst.org by Thursday, March 12.
