What Women Want Campaign
The White Ribbon Alliance’s What Women Want (WWW) campaign originated with a simple, yet radical premise—that women and girls know best. When women and girls are involved in identifying barriers and solutions to healthcare, progress accelerates. In April 2018, WRA launched a year-long effort to ask one million women and girls worldwide about their top request for their own reproductive and maternal healthcare. Nearly 1.2 million women and girls from 114 countries responded, with top responses illustrating that more than anything women want basic infrastructure and basic decency. This includes respectful and dignified care; water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH); medicines and supplies, such as life-saving maternal health medicines and products. This webinar will further examine women’s demands related to reproductive and maternal health supplies and spark a discussion about how RHSC members can not only use WWW findings to support their advocacy goals, but also about opportunities for the Coalition to act on women’s resounding calls for a dignified experience of care.
