About IWHC & Akimbo
The International Women’s Health Coalition (IWHC) leads global and local actions to secure every woman’s right to a just and healthy life. We are creating a world where women are free from discrimination, sexual coercion and violence, and have access to health services and information. We promote and protect the sexual and reproductive rights and health (SRRH) of all women and young people, particularly in Africa, Asia, and Latin America, by helping to develop effective health and population policies, programs, and funding.
Our blog Akimbo is where we publish perspectives on world events and policies affecting women’s health and rights. The blog is less formal than our print publications and will provide some insight on our daily reactions to what’s happening in reproductive health and sexual rights on the global scale. Our contributors include IWHC staff members and our partners from around the world.
