Center for Global Development : Publications: Start with a Girl: A New Agenda for Global Health

In October the Center for Global Development released a publication discussing the importance — indeed, the centrality — of girls and young women in the overall trends and patterns of global health.  You can read about the report and download a PDF version at the link below.

Improving the health of adolescent girls in the developing world is the key to improving maternal and child health, reducing the impact of HIV, and accelerating social and economic development.

Start with a Girl: A New Agenda for Global Health sheds light on the realities of girls' health and wellbeing in developing countries, on the links between the health of girls and the prospects for their families, and on the specific actions that will improve health prospects for millions.
