The 2012 Resolve Award Celebration: Delivering on the Promise of Universal Access to Reproductive Health

Aspen Global Health and Development and The World Health Organization Department of Reproductive Health and Research present the second annual


The 2012 Resolve Award Celebration:
Delivering on the Promise of Universal Access to Reproductive Health

What cost-effective intervention can decrease poverty, human impact on the environment, and competition for scarce resources while fortifying the resilience of women and families to climate change, and improving the health, education rates and security of a nation?

Reproductive health.

Four countries will be awarded the prestigious Resolve Award, announced last year by the Global Leaders Council for Reproductive Health at the inaugural Geneva Policy Dialogue Series on Reproductive Health in May 2011. Join us to celebrate their progress and learn how they overcame challenges of financing, service delivery and policy to accelerate access to reproductive health.
