“…For the first time last year [Davos] organizers started to elevate their conversations to include health. They realized that to improve the health of the economy they would need to improve the population’s health. … When business leaders talk about health, we know that there is a serious economic point to be made, especially when you talk about it in the broadest possible terms to include sexual health. … Small investments can produce staggering results. That’s why IPPF is campaigning for a goal on gender equality, women’s empowerment, and universal access to sexual and reproductive health and rights to be at the heart of new development goals…” (1/21).
