WGNRR – Latin America and the Caribbean

Since the region already has strong women’s and SRHR movements, WGNRR has focused on creating alliances with regional networks here. We share membership and carry out joint activities with our sister organisation, the Latin American and Caribbean Women’s Health Network, in order to avoid duplication of our work, and to expand our reach. We play a key role in this region, bringing the regional movement messages and lessons to global advocacy spaces, as well as facilitating sharing of success in other regions. Massive mobilisations also take place in Latin America on May 28th, when the Latin American and Caribbean Women’s Health Network annually issues a Call for Action and encourages member groups to mobilise in order to commemorate the International Day of Action for Women’s Health.
