Women Deliver 2013 Conference in Malaysia: Registration Now Open
Registration has officially opened for the Women Deliver 2013 conference. On May 28-30 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, more 5,000 expected participants from around the world will convene with one goal - to improve the lives of girls and women. Participants will include Heads of State, government and UN officials, Ministers of Health and Finance, Parliamentarians, youth advocates, corporate executives, healthcare professionals, academics, civil society organizations, and grassroots activists
The upcoming year is a critical moment for girls and women. As we see the rates of maternal mortality go down, we see that success is possible and that solutions exist. But our work is far from done – 800 women are still dying during pregnancy and childbirth every day and countless more are injured. What we need now – and more urgently than ever – are even stronger political and financial commitments to save and improve the lives of girls, women, and newborns.
