Let’s Keep Girls in School

What good is dispensing health care in urban settings if the bigger problem of education is not wrestled to the ground?

The 18th annual International Congress on Women’s Health Issues will investigate during one session what initiatives are needed to help women out of slum conditions.

The answer is education.

The Friday session called Keeping Girls in School: Supporting Girls Health to Promote Their Empowerment explores the importance of supporting vulnerable girls’ health and educational needs as a way to keep them in school and promote their empowerment.

Witnesses will analyze situations in urban and rural school districts globally and strategize ways to support vulnerable girls’ health to promote their empowerment.
