The USAID | Health Policy Initiative, Task Order 1, is implementing an important training event to build the capacity of women leaders to reinvigorate family planning/reproductive health (FP/RH) programs, funding, and policies within their communities and countries.
The initiative will conduct WomenLead in Repositioning Reproductive Health on September 7 - 25, 2009, in Washington, DC. WomenLead, a training program designed by CEDPA, is intended for early to mid-career women currently working to promote quality, gender sensitive reproductive health programs in civil society, government, and political sectors. The workshop will provide participants with cutting edge technical updates; training on leadership, advocacy, and strategic communication; and opportunities to add their voices to the public dialogue on family planning and reproductive health.
This letter is being sent to request your help in getting the WomenLead announcement and application into the hands of qualified women who have the passion and the capacity to give voice to FP/RH policy dialogue at all levels. Please share the application with your networks, partner organizations, and donor agencies to ensure that we reach as wide an audience as possible and find the next generation of FP/RH champions. Applications are limited to the following priority countries: Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia, Kenya, Madagascar, Malawi, Nigeria, Rwanda, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, Haiti, India (U.P.), and Pakistan
The Health Policy Initiative will receive and review the applications and award 20 scholarships that cover tuition, hotel, meal allowance, US-based travel, and medical insurance. Applicants are asked to secure local funding to cover the cost of their international travel. The WomenLead workshop application is available at www.cedpa.org/section/training/womenlead and on www.cedpa.org and www.healthpolicyinitiative.com. The application provides a detailed description of the workshop as well as eligibility criteria. The deadline for receipt of applications is June 25, 2009.
Thank you in advance for your help in disseminating this announcement. Please contact me if you have any questions about eligibility or the application process.
