Dear Deeply Readers,

Welcome to the archives of News Deeply’s Women & Girls Hub. While we paused regular publication of the site on January 22, 2018, and transitioned our coverage to Women’s Advancement Deeply, we are happy to serve as an ongoing public resource on the Arctic. We hope you’ll enjoy the reporting and analysis that was produced by our dedicated community of editors contributors.

We continue to produce events and special projects while we explore where the on-site journalism goes next. If you’d like to reach us with feedback or ideas for collaboration you can do so at [email protected].


From HIV to fistula, maternal mortality to lupus, we examine the health issues that affect women’s lives in the developing world.

In the developing world, a woman’s health is determined by a number of factors beyond her control. As we cover the big issues – maternal mortality, early marriage, HIV, FGM – and those that usually get less attention, such as fistula and menstruation, we can see the challenges that girls and women face, and find out how we can help them stay healthy.
