The objective of the Health Literacy Community is to build expertise and improve the policy development process by gathering current and emerging information from all WHO regions and organizing it in one place. It provide a forum for community members to interact on the basis of those materials from time to time as the need arises.
Endometriosis is a NCD - a noncommunicable disease that effects over 176 million women. People with illness are being part of the conversation over policy and action that influences their lives. I was fortunate to represent women with endometriosis with my story and health information in Geneva to define the agenda for updates to policy for the 2018 United Nations - High Level meeting. It was amazing working with this amazing bunch.
