WEDO has agreed to put together a comprehensive lobbying document in time for the PrepCom. Some organizations have agreed to work on gathering comments on specific issues. WeDO has also agreed to compile comments on Poverty and Economy, Environment and Women in Decisionmaking and you can send any comments relted to these issues to email@example.com (WEDO). If you have comments related to Health please send them to Francoise Girard firstname.lastname@example.org at the International Women's Health Coalition.
