Meeting Global Challenges:
Healthy Women, Healthy World
IWHC's Third Annual Gala, January 2004
On January 15, 2004, the International Women's Health Coalition held its Third Annual Gala at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York City, celebrating 20 years of work defending and advancing girls' and women's health and rights worldwide. We honored United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan for his recognition that women's health and rights are central to solving global challenges.

Actress Glenn Close and CBS news correspondent Lesley Stahl led a toast for IWHC's 20th anniversary.
