Women Deliver’s conferences have become some of the world’s biggest global convenings to focus on the health, rights, and wellbeing of girls and women.  The third Women Deliver conference is held in Copenhagen, Denmark, from 16-19 May 2016, and will bring together world leaders, advocates, policymakers, journalists, young people, researchers, and leaders of corporate companies and civil society to showcase what it means and how it works when girls and women become the focus of development efforts. It will be the largest gathering on girls’ and women’s health, rights, and wellbeing in more than a decade and one of the first major global conferences following the launch of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The focus of the conference will be on how to implement the SDGs so they matter most for girls and women, with a specific focus on health – in particular maternal, sexual, and reproductive health and rights – and on gender equality, education, environment, and economic empowerment.
