Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's speech on the 15th anniversary of the International Conference on Population and Development was delivered at the U.S. Department of State on Friday, January 8, 2010. In the speech, Secretary Clinton said that "Investing in the health of women, adolescents, and girls is not only the right thing to do; it is also the smart thing to do. That is why we are integrating women’s issues as key elements of our foreign policy agenda and in, especially, our Global Health Initiative and our Global Food Security Initiative."

Even though I have worked in Sierra Leone in the past, the role of MLI Country Lead has given me the opportunity to build upon these previous experiences and to work closely with members of the Ministry of Health and Sanitation (MOHS), to support the implementation of health policies and reforms that they have prioritized.
