WASHINGTON, D.C., November 21, 2022 – Valerie Huber, founder and president of the Institute for Women’s Health (IWH), addressed CPAC Mexico this past weekend where she shared the work of the Institute with international participants. The conference was organized by the Conservative Political Action Conference in collaboration with Movimiento Viva México, and held in Mexico City on Nov. 18 and 19. The event brought together hundreds of leaders, organizations and activists to energize the fight for conservative values in America and abroad.
Huber spoke on behalf of the Washington, D.C.-based health policy institute she leads — a one-of-its-kind organization committed to advancing the health and thriving of girls and women everywhere. The Institute is focused on removing ideology from the women’s health agenda and endorses the Geneva Consensus Declaration (GCD) and its growing coalition of 37 nations.
“Let’s take back the women’s health narrative. Let’s find new ways to show the doubters that we authentically care about women and girls – at all stages of life. Let’s encourage the countries that are GCD members to stand firm,” Valerie Huber said. “In 2023, may it be known that the family of nations in the GCD is very much alive, growing, becoming more sophisticated, and WINNING in defense of life, in pursuit of better health for women and girls, and in growing healthy families.”
The GCD is a first-ever strategic international coalition representing every region of the world, one committed to: 1) Protecting the health and thriving of women throughout every stage of life, 2) Asserting that there is no international right to abortion, 3) Defending the family as foundational to every healthy society and 4) Protecting the sovereign right of nations to support these core values through national policy and legislation.
Other speakers included Lech Walesa, former leader of Poland; Eduardo Bolsonaro, son of President of Brazil and Member of Congress; and many other political leaders from around the world.
