The Reverse Co-del is our signature advocacy tool—a flip on the concept of congressional delegations abroad, in which members of Congress visit countries and learn about development and U.S. foreign assistance. The Reverse Co-del brings advocates and experts from the Global South to Washington, D.C. to educate Congress and government officials.
In response to the deepening Zika crisis, CHANGE convened a panel discussion in Washington, D.C. to address the issue in the framework of sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR). On September 29, 2016, health policy experts, along with CHANGE, gathered at the Embassy of Sweden for “A Rights-Based Approach to Zika: Putting Women and Girls at the Center of the Global Response.”
CHANGE’s groundbreaking report, called “Prescribing Chaos in Global Health,” documents the harms of the Global Gag Rule (GGR) from 1984 to 2018, with new data revealing the impacts of the Trump administration’s expanded version of the global rule in Mozambique and Zimbabwe.
On March 8, 2017, CHANGE led more than 40 women’s rights groups and one thousand protesters as they descended on Washington, D.C. to protest President Trump’s expansion of the Global Gag Rule (GGR), and to support women worldwide who would be hurt by this deadly policy.
