International Women's Health Coalition

"Founded in 1984 by Joan Dunlop and Adrienne Germain, the International Women’s Health Coalition works in three ways to build political will and influence the policies of governments, donors, and international agencies to secure girls' and women's sexual and reproductive health and rights:

  • "We provide professional assistance and financial support, $1.5-2.0 million annually, to local organizations in Africa, Asia, and Latin America.
  • "We inform professional and public debates in the United States and abroad through policy analyses, reports on effective programs and strategies, and media outreach.
  • "We advocate at intergovernmental conferences, and collaborate with the UN Population Fund, the World Health Organization, the World Bank, and other international agencies to generate essential policies and resource flows that benefit women and their families." [1]

"Annual Budget: $5-6 million, provided by private foundations, UN agencies, European governments, individuals, and corporations." [2]
