Women Deliver is a global organization that advocates for gender equality and the health and rights of girls and women. They work with local and global organizations to increase awareness of gender equality and women’s sexual and reproductive health as well as rights during emergencies and their aftermaths. The organization has collaborated with a wide range of partners to drive their advocacy, one of which was creating the Deliver for Good campaign, a global coalition that applies a gender lens to the Sustainable Development Goals. Women Deliver, another outreach, uses evidence, advocacy, and communication to make the case that investing in girls, women, and gender equality is the right thing to do.

Every three years, the organization meets at the global Women Deliver Conference where members of different sectors of governments from private and international agencies work alongside advocates, activists, and journalists to identify solutions and drive change for gender equality around the world.

The second Women Deliver Conference took place on June 7-9, 2010, in Washington, D.C. 3,400 advocates, policymakers, development leaders, health care professionals, youth, and media from 146 countries converged in the conference and more than 800 speeches and presentations were given at the six plenaries and 120 breakout sessions. The heads of five U.N. agencies plus the Secretary-General were represented at the conference. Thirty countries, U.N. agencies, the World Bank, corporations, and foundations helped support Women Deliver.
