Rwanda is hosting the Women Deliver Conference, the world’s largest conference on the health, rights, and wellbeing of girls and women.
First Ladies from various countries convened in Kigali to discuss ways of promoting the health, rights, and overall well-being of girls and women.
The first ladies and other leaders are expected to address 6,000 people attending physically and an estimated 200,000 others following virtually.
Presidents including Rwanda’s President Paul Kagame, Hungary’s Katalin Novák, Ethiopia’s Sahle-Work Zewde and Senegal’s Macky Sall are expected to grace the event.
The sixth edition of Women Deliver Conference, themed “Spaces, Solidarity, and Solutions,” is the first to be held in Africa.
