We want to say a big thank you to everyone who came down to NRCH today to show their support and to #breakthebias. We will continue to reflect on and acknowledge the important role we all play as women, men, non-binary and gender diverse people in taking action collectively. 

IWD’s focus continues all year, and NRCH is committed to supporting women’s rights and continues to drive change towards better access to healthcare for women from culturally diverse backgrounds and rural areas.
