On 17-20 July, MDFC was thrilled to attend the Women Deliver Conference. WD2023 took place in Rwanda and convened thousands of decision-makers from diverse fields, including civil societies, governments, the private sectors, international agencies, and advocates representing the intersectional identities of girls and women, and underrepresented populations around the World to break the barriers, address the challenges and identify the opportunities to advance gender equality and sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR), and improve the wellbeing of girls and women, in all their intersecting identities. It was a great memorable and inspiring moment for MDFC to exchange invaluable insights, experiences, and barriers faced by Healthcare Professionals in delivering essential SRHR services with different stakeholders and partners that work on advancing SRHR services accessibility to all.

The theme of WD2023, “Spaces, Solidarity, and Solutions,” facilitated inclusive and co-created spaces that fostered solidarity for sustainable solutions in the realm of gender equality.

During WD2023, with sexual and reproductive health and rights at its core, It embraced intersectional feminist principles to address compounding issues impacting girls and women – from climate change to gender-based violence and unpaid care work. The conference collectively identified evidence-based solutions, enhancing collective power by championing the leadership of grassroots advocates, connecting them with decision-makers, and sharing key advocacy strategies. Coming together, WD203 aimed to break barriers, address challenges, and identify opportunities to advance gender equality and improve the well-being of girls and women in all their intersecting identities.
