Thank You, Deeply

Dear Women & Girls Community,

We are excited to share our plans for the future of women and girls’ coverage at News Deeply.

In January 2018, our Women & Girls page will close as we launch the first of a new set of dedicated platforms that will allow us to dive deeper into the biggest issues affecting women and girls in the developing world.

This first platform – Women’s Advancement Deeply – will cover the pursuit of economic equality for women, from securing gender-equal access to financial services, to fighting for property rights and closing the pay gap.

We’ll also be working to launch other dedicated platforms in this space, and we are currently exploring themes of maternal, sexual and reproductive health, as well as gender-based violence. If these topics are of interest to you, please let us know here – we would love your input as we shape new initiatives.

Our trove of existing Women & Girls coverage will remain available through an archived version of the site, allowing you to explore and reference our published articles dating back to May 2016

Thank you for being part of the Women & Girls community. We look forward to having you join us in our new endeavors in this space.

Sincerely,

Lara Setrakian, CEO and Co-founder, News Deeply
Megan Clement, Managing Editor, Women & Girls, News Deeply

Video: What Trump’s UNFPA Cuts Mean for Syrian Refugees in Jordan

The Trump administration has cut funding to the UNFPA, which provides health services to Syrian refugees in Jordan. For Sultana, that could mean an end to vital treatment for PTSD.

Thousands of Syrian women now living as refugees in Jordan are reliant on healthcare centers supported by the United Nations Population Fund for treatments such as counseling and reproductive health. But U.S. President Donald Trump has cut funding to the body, putting the future of many of these centers at risk. News Deeply met one Syrian woman who says the treatment she has received at the Madaba center transformed her life, and worries what will happen to her and her family if it is forced to close down.
