Healthy Women, Healthy Economies: Implementation On A Global Scale


Venue: Constitution Hall, Room 328, Floor 3, Building 1, Seimas


“Healthy Women, Healthy Economies" (HWHE) is a public-private partnership created to advance women’s health and, in turn, increase their economic participation. The panel will provide knowledge and best-practice examples, whilst also gathering suggestions from the WPL members present about implementing HWHE in their countries. The session will use the occasion to launch a call for “champions” of the initiative who are willing to help implement HWHE’s vision for women’s health and success.
