Copenhagen Wins Multiple Prestigious Congresses

Wonderful Copenhagen has won the 4th Women Deliver Global Conference. This internationally renowned event will gather 5,000 opinion leaders, experts and media to the largest conference in the world for women’s rights and health. There was strong competition to host the conference from Vancouver, Vienna, Barcelona and Berlin among other cities.

“We are beyond excited that Women Deliver 2016 will be held in Copenhagen. The Danish government has played a key role in promoting the rights and health of young girls and women, and we expect that this will ensure that the conference will help push these topics to the top of the global development agenda and gather advocates and opinion leaders from all over the world," said Women Deliver president, Jill Sheffield

On securing the conference for  Copenhagen, Danish Trade and Development Minister, Mogens Jensen, commented:
“Denmark is known as a strong advocate of women’s and girls’ rights to make decisions regarding their own bodies, and winning this conference to Copenhagen is a clear acknowledgment of Danish efforts”
In 2013, the Women Deliver Global Conference, held in Kuala Lumpur, attracted 4,500 attendees from 149 different countries all working towards the common goals of improving the maternal, sexual and reproductive health and rights of women and girls.
