The Child Marriage and Youth Empowerment (CMYE) Group has been established in collaboration with the UC Berkeley Bixby Center for Population, Health & Sustainability, the UC Global Health Institute’s Women’s Health, Gender and Empowerment Center of Expertise, and UC Berkeley School of Law Human Rights Center. The group is led by Julianna Deardroff, PhD, Erin Murphy-Graham, EdD, MSc and Ndola Prata, MD, MSc.
Our policy development initiative (click here for scoping paper), the Child Marriage and Youth Empowerment Group, focuses on collaborating with government, NGO’s, civil society groups and other stakeholders to improve reproductive health policies and programs to address youth needs. In many instances, we generate evidence, synthesize and facilitate policy decisions making. The CMYE group regularly hosts speakers on topics relevant to the group, please email i4Y@berkeley.edu for information about the speaker series.
