The Summit Foundation has provided program support to ICRW’s Global Health, Youth and Development portfolio, which enables ICRW to undertake and build upon research and advocacy work on issues related to adolescent sexual and reproductive health, child marriage and the empowerment of girls. This grant allows ICRW to provide technical support, guidance and advice to enable partner organizations, government and UN agencies, the media and others to facilitate and implement important systematic changes regarding these critical issues. This support also offers ICRW the ability to grow its portfolio of work and develop innovative solutions to some of the most pressing challenges facing adolescent girls, including their sexual and reproductive health.
