Country Advocacy Working Group

The Country Advocacy Working Group (CAWG) aims to grow and provide a community of and for individuals and organizations who are working, or interested in working, to advance self-care through policy, programmatic, and public advocacy at national and subnational levels.

Intended to be a sharing, learning, and incubation forum, the CAWG strives to bring more people into the self-care fold, linking and connecting with established coalitions to socialize self-care as a cross-cutting solution for the promotion of broader health, well-being, and rights.

CAWG meets on a quarterly basis, with meetings to feature presentations of self-care advocacy efforts from various national and subnational partners, with time for Q&A and joint brainstorming. Each meeting will be organized with an existing coalition or group to reach and highlight self-care among their constituencies. However, meetings will not be exclusive to the membership of those coalitions and will be open to all members of the SCTG.
