Supporting, Empowering Women, Girls Essential To Achieving SDGs

United Nations Foundation’s “Global Connections”: Giving Women a Stronger Voice in Global Health
As part of the blog’s series titled “Her Goals: Our Future,” Kim Cernak, deputy director of Friends of the Global Fight Against AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, discusses the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the importance of ensuring women have equal access to health care, writing, “While it may be easy to dismiss women and girls as just one demographic in a complex development puzzle, they should instead be seen as key to unlocking better health for all — and the source of a win for SDG 3. Supporting and empowering them is how we will end epidemics and continue saving lives by 2030 and beyond” (5/5).
