WSSCC and its partner Essity are pleased to host a special side event at the 2018 World Health Assembly entitled Women on the Rise: Women’s Health and Hygiene in the SDG Era. The event takes place 24 May from 08.30-10.15 at the Intercontinental Hotel in Geneva, Switzerland.

The event will examine how hygiene and health are enablers of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) yet are often forgotten in discussions at global fora. This session, which is open to the public, aims to deepen the dialogue on the intersectionality of SDG 3 (Health), SDG 5 (Gender Equality) and SDG 6 (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene, with special attention to SDG 6.2).
