On this year’s International Women’s Day, we reaffirm our commitment to achieving gender equality in the health and development sectors. We stand with women and girls around the world and celebrate their incredible resilience and strength.
This year’s theme, DigitALL: Innovation and technology for gender equality, highlights the power of technology to accelerate progress towards gender equality. We remain committed to using innovative digital tools and approaches to tackle gender inequality in our key thematic areas and to see that no one is left behind. Together, let’s continue to work towards a world where everyone has the opportunity to thrive, regardless of gender.
