In the US and abroad, the Trump Administration and Congress are poised to significantly undermine women’s and girls’ sexual and reproductive rights. In the first six months of 2017 alone, the Trump Administration has reinstated and expanded the “global gag rule;” cut off funding for UNFPA; and proposed drastic cuts to reproductive health and family planning funding, among other actions, which would restrict women’s access to comprehensive reproductive health care and threaten their health and lives. This two-year program officer position will work in Washington, DC as part of IWHC’s US Foreign Policy team to resist regressive laws and policies, build new alliances and strengthen champions for sexual and reproductive health and rights. In particular, the Program Officer will play a leading role in shaping and executing IWHC’s advocacy strategies, with a focus on developing highly strategic and impactful advocacy messages, campaigns, materials and events. The Program Officer will cultivate relationships and advocates with key decision-makers, mobilize alliances to support the health and human rights of women and girls and expand the visibility and voice of the IWHC and our partners in DC and globally.
