Frances Longley

Chief Executive, FIGO

"As a SheDecides Champion and CEO of the International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO), I commit to ensuring bodily autonomy and sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR). These are front and centre of the work of FIGO and our member societies – professional membership organisations of obstetrics and gynaecology. Together, we continue to take a bold stance on the protection of SRHR as an unequivocal and essential element of the care of women and girls.”
