The Global Community Says…
  • Access to information about health issues and
    accessible healthcare continues to be one of the
    biggest challenges that impedes the full
    realization of women's rights globally.  If a
    woman is unable to keep herself and her family
    healthy, it becomes next to impossible for her to
    be able to fully realize her rights and be
    empowered to influence the circumstances of her
    life.  Community Action for Women's Health and
    Empowerment is a critically needed resource to
    promote action through offering practical advice,
    strategies and strengthening collective efforts
    at the local level to ensure that women can
    creatively bring about systemic, transformative
    change to ensure health and well-being."
