Join us for a vibrant conversation with top Ghanaian women’s rights activists, working on the frontlines of development, gender and HIV/AIDS, integrated sexual and reproductive health services and community justice.

Hear about how they are overcoming violence against women, empowering women and girls to take a seat at the tables where decisions are made and working from a holistic approach by integrating gender and rights perspectives in programming geared to women affected and those infected by HIV/AIDS.
