Canada’s new feminist international assistance policy puts women and girls at the heart of aid efforts around the world.

“The fight for equality begins with empowering women and girls.” – we couldn’t agree more, @JustinTrudeau!

Take Action: Educating Girls Strengthens the Global Fight Against Climate Change

Trudeau said the new policy invests in women’s grassroots organizations like never before and highlights an idea we all know to be true.

“Given equal opportunities, women and girls can change the world,” the couple said in unison.

He told the crowd that he plans to bring to this same message to the G20 summit, which starts tomorrow.

Within the policy is a commitment to better support positive health outcomes for women and girls by putting gender at the heart of healthcare initiatives.

This includes empowering healthcare workers (many of whom are women), as well as applying initiatives that help fight diseases through equity-based approaches, and focusing on diseases that disproportionately affect women and girls, like HIV.

When Trudeau returned to the stage later on in the evening, he spoke about diseases that greatly affect women around the world, like polio, tuberculosis, and AIDS. He spoke of the risks associated with pregnancy and child birth, and said that malnutrition is a constant concern in societies where women and girls eat least, and eat last, he said.

“The good news is that there is a good number of people that work hard every day to help the poorest and most vulnerable citizens to escape the cycle of poverty and disease,” he said before introducing Sufi Mujhgan, a woman who fights on the frontlines of polio eradication.

He also mentioned Canada’s massive commitment toward fighting the crippling disease. 

“Canada recently announced a contribution of $100 million to help eradicate polio worldwide. And I know it’s a goal we can reach, thanks to people like Sufi,” he said.

It will be women who are trained in their communities to make sure that every child is reached when it comes to polio eradication.https://youtu.be/cZGoa1vfM9M
