Maternal & Reproductive Health

When healthcare is informed by the women and girls who use it, it’s better healthcare.

What Women Want is our flagship advocacy campaign to improve quality maternal and reproductive healthcare for women and girls. At the same time, it is a challenge to the power structures that help silence women’s voices and ambitions.

In our hospitals, there were no midwives, now we have them. We had no water in the clinic, now there is water. Let women, youths, girls, and our old women come out, participate, and tell the government what they need. This campaign (What Women Want) has changed my life. It gave me a voice.
