Wednesday 3 - Thursday 4 August 2016

We are proud to present to you the Catalyst 4 Change - Achieving Sustainable Development Goals for Women, Children and their Families Conference" delivered in partnership by Pacific Society of Reproductive Health and TAHA Well Pacific Mother and Infant Service. 

This forum aims to raise awareness of the recently ratified Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the universal determination to progress a range of indicators by 2030.  The SDGs, if achieved, will significantly improve the lives of many women, children and families.  While reproductive health is an important focus of the conference, evidence commands that consideration be given to broad impacts such as economics, human rights, culture and the environment.  With these in mind, our objective is to identify and describe effective catalysts (people, policy, programmes, research and innovations) that lead to real transformation. 

We are privileged to have a range of international and local leaders who will share their insights on sustainable development for women, children and families.  Abstract submissions are now open for organisations, community groups and students to present their work, with 10 free registrations available for students and community representatives.  There are also various sponsorship opportunities for organisations who wish to partner with us in supporting this conference.

We warmly invite you to take up the opportunity to participate in the Catalyst 4 Change Conference and look forward to meeting you Auckland in August.
