From a good education and a safe place to live to quality healthcare and economic opportunity, women and girls must meet 6 Essential Needs to succeed. Our work, determined by local women and girls, provides resources to help meet these needs.
Healthy women are more likely to survive childbirth and to produce healthy children. They are more productive and can contribute to the wellbeing and prosperity of their families, communities and countries. Healthy women are the foundation of a better future.

Ensuring Adolescent Girls' Wellbeing: A Holistic Approach [pdf]
The objective of this document is to consolidate information related to adolescent girls’ wellbeing and to illustrate entry points for holistic, multi-sectoral initiatives that can help girls achieve wellbeing. This resource is outcome-focused; multiple experts from the adolescent girl field identified their optimal outcomes as related to girls’ education, health, economic empowerment, hygiene, experience of gender-based violence, and experience in conflict, emergency, or humanitarian settings. We illustrate connections across sectors that make the case that the holistic needs of girls must be taken into consideration regardless of in which sector the program or policy originates.
