Women Deliver 4th Global Conference Regional Caucuses

**Deadline Extended until 10 February 2016 for only the following regions: Central/Middle Africa, Latin America & the Caribbean, and Middle East/North Africa.***

The Women Deliver 4th Global Conference, which will be held in Copenhagen, Denmark from 16–19 May 2016, is a critical platform to engage participants to advocate to political leaders and influencers to support policy and resource recommendations emerging from the conference both during the event and upon their return.  The focus of the conference will be on how to implement the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) so they matter most for girls and women, with a specific focus on health—in particular maternal, sexual, and reproductive health and rights—gender equality, education, environment, and economic empowerment.

Building on successful caucuses at the 2010 and 2013 global conferences, Women Deliver and PATH will support the organization of up to nine regional caucuses during the main program at the 2016 conference. Regional caucuses will bring together diverse stakeholders to discuss major priorities and strategies for strengthening political and financial commitments to girls’ and women’s health and well-being in their region and countries. Emphasis will be on improving reproductive, maternal, newborn, child, and adolescent health and gender equality in SDG implementation and accountability efforts.


About the application process

PATH is seeking applications from organizations to lead the development and execution of the caucus for their designated region, one organization in each of nine regions: Eastern Africa, Western Africa, Central/Middle Africa, Southern Africa, Middle East/North Africa (MENA), South-Eastern Asia, Southern Asia, Central Asia/Eastern Europe, and Latin America and the Caribbean.

Applicant organizations must be registered and/or incorporated as a nongovernmental or nonprofit organization in a country that is part of the region for which they are applying. In-country offices or affiliates of international nongovernmental and/or nonprofit organizations located in the selected regions are welcome to apply.

PATH will award up to USD$15,000 to one organization per region. Funding will expire May 31, 2016.

Caucuses will take place on May 19 at the Bella Center conference venue during the main program of the Women Deliver 4th Global Conference.

Applications are now being accepted on a rolling basis, and are due no later than 11:59pm ET on February 10, 2016.
