U.S. Continues To Support Efforts Aimed At Improving Health, Lives Of Adolescent Girls In Malawi
U.S. Department of State’s “DipNote”: Lifting the Roof: How a New Effort Could Change Everything for Girls in Malawi
Virginia Palmer, U.S. ambassador to Malawi; Deborah Birx, U.S. ambassador-at-large for global HIV and AIDS and global health diplomacy; and Cathy Russell, U.S. ambassador-at-large for global women’s issues discuss the challenges that adolescent girls face in Malawi, such as gender-based violence and a lack of access to health care, including sexual and reproductive health services. The authors also discuss U.S. efforts to support these girls “with a comprehensive approach, focusing diplomatic efforts and foreign assistance programs on improving the systems that can make or break outcomes for adolescent girls: education, health, safety, and economic security” (1/18).
