Fall 2016 PreventIPV Newsletter: Investing in Girls

Tuesday, 13 December 2016

"Investing in girls is the right and smart thing to do." (UN Women)

As is illustrated in this infographic from UN Women, investments into girls' health and education can have a profound positive impact on families, communities, and economies around the world.

Recent PreventIPV Webinars have explored:

  • Strategies for promoting social determinants of health (SDOH) including health care, education, and economic stability, as part of a comprehensive prevention strategy (access recording), and
  • The importance of centering girls of color within our racial and gender justice movements (access recording).

Taken together, these conversations encourage us to follow a common North Star as we work toward our shared vision of healthy and safe communities: the last girl. If we invest in her, we change our world in ways that advance health, justice, and safety for all.

This issue of the PreventIPV newsletter features new additions to the Tools Inventory centered on investing in girls, training resources to support ongoing dialogue about impactful prevention strategies, and new Engagement resources that support partnership and collaboration as action for social change.
