Feedback on the Zero Draft of the Global Strategy

The wealth and depth of the feedback was incredible. Many respondents felt the Strategy was “very good and makes a strong case for promoting women and girls rights and well-being” (Youth). The Zero Draft resonated with this global audience in a number of ways:

  •  It made a compelling case to update and expand the strategy;
  • The new focus on adolescent health was endorsed;
  • There was appreciation for the ambition to embed the Strategy in a human rights approach, and for the new focus on humanitarian settings and addressing inequities. 
  • The full report of the consultation can be accessed here.
