Place: The Aspen Institute, Washington, DC, United States

In November 2009, WHO launched the report "Women and health: today's evidence tomorrow's agenda", which provides the latest global figures on women's health and identifies specific needs and health challenges that women face over the life-course, from birth to older age.

Participating panelists from the U.S. Administration and international organizations will discuss the policy implications of the evidence showcased in the report and the opportunities and tools currently available to decision-makers in the health arena in the U.S. and internationally.

Dr Tonya Nyagiro, Director, Department of Gender, Women and Health will present the evidence of the WHO report. Mr John Donnelly, Vice President and Senior Editor, Burness Communications will moderate the discussion.
