Speaker icon

Jill Sheffield is a global educator and advocate who has worked to promote women’s health and rights around the world for more than three decades. Women Deliver is an international advocacy organization that convenes global leaders to galvanize action on maternal health and women’s empowerment. The first Women Deliver conference, which was held in 2007, was credited with putting Millennium Development Goal 5 (MDG5) on the international agenda. The second conference in 2010 convened more than 3,400 policymakers, activists, business leaders, and public figures and called for greater commitment and substantial funding for maternal, reproductive, and newborn health. Sheffield’s commitment to women’s reproductive rights in developing countries was inspired while volunteering for a family planning clinic at the Pumwani Maternity Hospital in Kenya in the mid-1960s
