Description

IWHC's Mission

The International Women's Health Coalition (IWHC) promotes and protects the sexual and reproductive rights and health of women and young people, particularly adolescent girls, in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East. IWHC advances this agenda by supporting and strengthening local leaders and organizations working within their communities and at the national and regional levels; by advocating for international policies, programs, and funding; and by seeking to influence U.S. policy on these matters.

IWHC builds bridges between local realities and global policy-making by connecting women and youth leaders in the Global South to key decision-makers. In doing so, IWHC brings local voices to global debates and in turn, makes global processes and policies more understandable and actionable at the local level.

IWHC's Vision

The International Women's Health Coalition envisions a world in which women and girls:

  • have access to the information and services they need to enhance and protect their health and achieve their full potential;
  • can make informed choices about their sexuality, relationships, pregnancy, child-bearing and marriage, free of discrimination, coercion, and violence;
  • are equally and effectively engaged in decisions that affect their sexual and reproductive rights and health; and
  • lead movements working to advance sexual and reproductive rights and health.
