Stephanie Linus cut a stylish figure in an embellished white dress as she was appointed as the Regional Maternal Health Ambassador for West & Central Africa by UNFPA, United Nations Population Fund, yesterday, March 8th, 2017.
While accepting her new role, she said:
“It is my aspiration that access to reproductive health care for women and girls, especially family planning, will be seen not as a blessing to be wished for, but as a human right to be fought for,”. “Fought for, not just because of equality, but because we are tired of women dying while giving birth, tired of teenage girls dropping out of school because they got pregnant too early, tired of women not having a choice to decide if, when and how many children they wish to have. I know I am tired of this. This is why I feel honoured to partner with UNFPA and to use my network to make these issues widely known.”
