"Ensuring Healthy Lives and Promoting Well-Being to Improve the Lives of Women and Girls" was announced as the theme for the 2019-2022 FAWCO Target Program Health at the Biennial Conference in Edinburgh, Scotland, on March 24, 2019.

 

   

Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease and infirmity.

– World Health Organization

Health programs that address gender barriers improve development programs overall. When women are educated and can earn and control income, infant mortality declines, child health and nutrition improve, population growth slows, economies expand, and cycles of poverty are broken.
