30 Years Safeguarding Rights and Dignity of African Women and Girls

From its humble beginnings in 1983, the Foundation for Women’s Health, Research and Development (FORWARD) has grown from strength to strength to become a leader in the promotion of African girls’ and women’s reproductive and sexual health rights.

This booklet maps out the 30 year history of FORWARD, reflecting our actions, achievements and aspirations for the future. FORWARD is grateful to the numerous friends and funders who have supported our work and to the many amazing people, women and men who have joined FORWARD’s campaign and shaped our knowledge, experience and ambitions.
