Beyond the Sum of our (Body) Parts: A Call to Action from Women and Girls is a groundbreaking report born from the voices of over one million women across 14 countries. It challenges the conventional top-down approach to women’s health, emphasizing the urgent need for comprehensive, holistic ...systems that address their diverse needs and priorities, presenting a resounding call to transform health, social, political, and economic systems worldwide.
During the official launch event on November 16, Kristy Kade made a poignant observation that underscores the report. "Women are people. They are not issues, they are not indicators. They are people that are faced with difficult choices. As as a development community, we have created a false choice - in asking women to choose between interconnected issues."
The new report calls to see women as holistic humans that have interrelated and interconnected needs - We can't treat women in siloes and expect incredible progress. To learn more, read the NEW report through our link in bio.
