Global Events

Global
conferences can be a powerful vehicle to rally support and put pressure on
world leaders to commit. Women Deliver’s two global conferences have each
achieved this with 2007 making the economic case for investing in girls and
women and 2010 putting maternal and reproductive health on the global
development agenda. Women Deliver 2010 was called “the most significant event
for the future of women and children in 20 years." Three-year intervals seem to allow new
developments to surface and be measured for impact, and to capture the
attention of a new generation of political leaders.

Population(s) Served

Women
Deliver created the C-Exchange to promote enhanced collaboration between the
private and public sectors, including, but not limited to, corporations,
governmental organizations, civil society, foundations, and institutions of
higher learning. The
inaugural meeting of the C-Exchange took place in January 2011 with six
corporations present and an additional six eager to attend. Other corporations will be recruited as
needed as well as other experts that have successfully tackled similar
problems. The focus will be exclusively solutions-oriented, bringing
life-saving products and technologies to areas in need.

Population(s) Served

We have failed to enlist
young people, the generation at the greatest risk of dying from complications
of pregnancy and childbirth, unsafe abortion, and HIV infection, in our cause.
We need engaged, articulate young people advocating for themselves and their
peers by speaking to Parliamentarians, government officials, development
officials, and the media about the need to invest in existing solutions to save
the lives of girls and women. Young people can drive change, particularly at the
country- and community-levels. Their perspective,
their experiences, and their willingness to question and challenge the social
norms will help break through the barriers to achieving ICPD and MDG5.

Population(s) Served

Women Deliver will hold four targeted
consultations in 2012, one each in Asia, sub-Saharan Africa, Middle East and Northern
Africa (MENA) and Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) followed by a global
conference in 2013 to galvanize regional attention and support around the
critical MDGs for girls and women. The consultations will seek to hammer out
on-the-ground strategies to directly and immediately improve the lives of girls
and women. Results of the two-day consultation will be widely published and
circulated in the region. Target attendees are the people that have the power
today to act – Parliamentarians, Health Ministers, Presidents – and the people
that have the ability to influence these decision-makers - thought leaders, youth, media, corporations,
etc. The consultations will be by invitation only and
limited to 250 participants including speakers and staff.

Goals & Strategy

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Women Deliver strives to keep SRHR and maternal health development priorities by:
•convening a global conference to generate commitments, share solutions, and rally advocates
•engaging young people as global advocates for SRHR and maternal health
•persuading world and country level leaders to commit to SRHR and maternal health up to and after 2015
•raising funds from the global public for girls and women
•involving corporations in advancing progress on reproductive and maternal health through innovation and technology

Women Deliver proposes to keep the momentum going by implementing a three-year advocacy plan. We will continue to focus on our core message - Invest in girls and women, it pays - and strengthen the economic case that was presented in 2007 at our first global conference. Women Deliver’s advocacy efforts will concentrate on getting the political will and resources to continue to make progress for girls and women, with a special emphasis on SRHR and maternal health. And with 2014 and 2015 only a few years away, our focus will be to keep SRHR and maternal health development priorities.

As a leading international advocacy organization with global reach and global convening power, Women Deliver is well positioned to keep the spotlight on girls and women, especially SRHR, and maternal health. Our brand name, “Women Deliver” is globally visible and highly respected. We are exceptionally nimble in responding to challenges and changes in the environment. We are focused on solutions, not the problems. Our messages are positive, and we are media savvy using events such as International Women’s Day to launch our widely acclaimed list of 100 people who deliver for women. We believe that family planning and safe abortion care must be embraced as part of the package of solutions. While Women Deliver’s focus is largely on MDG5, our conference and events cover a broad spectrum of issues, recognizing the inter-connectivity of the MDGs, especially those relating to girls and women. Finally, we believe in the power of partnerships seeking to complement, not replicate.

Added value of Women Deliver:
Proven Ability to Engage Non-Traditional Players: Women Deliver believes that broad-based support – from across the political spectrum and from all sectors – is crucial in affecting policies and funding for SRHR and maternal health.. Women Deliver launched in 2011 the Corporate Exchange (C-Exchange) program to facilitate corporate giants like Johnson & Johnson and Bayer Schering in maternal health advocacy, and we have engaged high-level Indian corporates in these efforts as well.

Strong Relationships with Target Stakeholders and Priority Countries: Women Deliver has strong existing and rapidly growing relationships with a number of key stakeholders, including media, researchers, thought leaders, young people, in both donor and developing countries. Among priority donor countries, Women Deliver is well-positioned to gauge and influence the landscape as well, as Jill Sheffield was a member of the Secretary General’s High-level Commission on Accountability for MDGs 4 and 5 for the UN Strategy for Women’s and Children’s Health. Women Deliver has a track record of strong youth engagement from its inception in 2007. Our website is updated nearly every day and over the year features hundreds of stories from across the globe, especially the global south. We regularly communicate with our database of thousands of NGOs.

Innovative: Women Deliver has invested in innovative projects such as the C-Exchange and the crowdfunding platform, using non-restrictive funding to create and build. The projects must fill a gap in the landscape for girls and women. The funding platform reaches out to the global public, a need that has been noted by many including Jo Cox’s report to the White Ribbon Alliance on the future of maternal health. The C-Exchange is a place where corporates can meet and draw in NGOs and governments to work together on projects.

The 2010 Women Deliver conference garnered top-level global media attention, including more than 300 stories and coverage from more than 200 journalists. Our list of 100 People Who Deliver for Women received global attention throughout 2011. Global Health Strategies, a communications firm, is on a yearly contract with Women Deliver and works closely with the three Women Deliver staff involved in communications.
Women Deliver employs the strategic use of media to influence policy and funding decisions, and has a proven record of success in doing so. Women Deliver was identified among the top five health communications successes in 2010. Using our global brand and strong relationships with top-tier and global media, Women Deliver can drive high-profile, global, and consistent media coverage to affect critical policy and funding support.
