Stephanie Linus, the UNFPA Regional Ambassador for Maternal Health in West and Central Africa has taken her advocacy to Ghana.
The award winning actress and movie director was in Ghana last week to attend a series of events on the invitation of UNFPA under the leadership of Mr. Niyi Ojuolape; UNFPA Ghana Representative, to advocate for quality maternal health care for women and young girls, resource mobilization for quality healthcare service delivery and encourage policies that protect the rights and dignity of the girl child.
She held a press conference, visited Radio Stations and paid a courtesy call to the Minister of Gender, Child and Social Protection, Hon. Otiko Afisah Djaba. Mrs. Linus also met with a coalition of youth organization to discuss some of her advocacy messages. Later that night, she was a stunning guest at the Glitz Style Awards.
Mrs. Linus continues to use her platform to speak against outdated cultural norms, prejudices and push the world to do more to empower women and girls with the freedom, education and equal rights they deserve.
