The International Women’s Health Coalition:

Accounts to: Senior Program Officer, U.S. Foreign Policy and Director of Advocacy and Policy
Based in: Washington, DC
Period: Two years
IWHC’S Mission
The International Women’s Health Coalition (IWHC) promotes and protects the sexual and reproductive rights and health of women and young people, particularly adolescent girls, in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East. IWHC advances this agenda by supporting and strengthening local leaders and organizations working within their communities and at the national and regional levels; by advocating for international policies, programs, and funding; and by seeking to influence U.S. policy on these matters.
IWHC builds bridges between local realities and global policy-making by connecting women and youth leaders in the Global South to key decision-makers. In doing so, IWHC brings local voices to global debates and in turn, makes global processes and policies more understandable and actionable at the local level.
IWHC’S Vision
The International Women’s Health Coalition envisions a world in which women and girls:
 have access to the information and services they need to enhance and protect their
health and achieve their full potential;
 can make informed choices about their sexuality, relationships, pregnancy, child-bearing
and marriage, free of discrimination, coercion, and violence;
 are equally and effectively engaged in decisions that affect their sexual and reproductive
rights and health; and
 lead movements working to advance sexual and reproductive rights and health.
Position Summary:
In the US and abroad, the Trump Administration and Congress are poised to significantly
undermine women’s and girls’ sexual and reproductive rights. In 2017, the Trump Administration
reinstated and expanded the “global gag rule”; cut off funding for UNFPA; and proposed drastic
cuts to reproductive health and family planning funding, among other actions, which would
restrict women’s access to comprehensive reproductive health care and threaten their health
and lives. This new, two-year program associate position will work in Washington, DC to support
IWHC’s US Foreign Policy team to mount strategic and coordinated resistance to laws and
policies that would threaten sexual and reproductive rights globally. The Program Associate will
contribute to the development and execution of IWHC’s advocacy strategies, with a focus on
developing highly strategic and impactful advocacy messages, campaigns, materials and
events.

IWHC issues and priorities;
 Assist in the organization of public events, seminars and briefings in DC and at the
United Nations;
 Conduct research for and assist in the drafting of cutting-edge analysis on US foreign

 Collect stories about how US foreign policy impacts the health and rights of women and
girls globally and create platforms to give voice to IWHC partners;

for the media, decision-makers, and IWHC supporters;
 Contribute to the development of strategies and work plans for both the Advocacy and
Policy Program and IWHC.
