Integrated Health Outreach (IHO) along with its CSO support network, the SIDS4 CSO Coalition presents "Local CSO Solutions: Empowering Women and Vulnerable Communities," a side event dedicated to showcasing local and community innovative approaches to financing and aid effectiveness through collaborative partnerships. Held against the backdrop of pressing challenges to SIDS productivity, this event shines a spotlight on solutions that strengthen local communities, particularly women and vulnerable populations, within Small Island Developing States (SIDS). The role of Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) in SIDS cannot be overstated. 

Many as grassroots organizations, are deeply embedded within communities, possessing unique insights and relationships that enable them to deliver targeted interventions effectively. The theme of the event, "Enhancing Critical Forms of Financing and Aid Effectiveness through Collaborative Partnerships" underscores the importance of collective action in achieving sustainable health outcomes in SIDS. By fostering collaboration among CSOs, governments, donors, and other stakeholders, we can amplify the impact of our efforts and ensure that resources are utilized efficiently and equitably, taking into account the unique framing for CSO finance in SIDS. Participants will have the opportunity to learn from inspiring examples of local CSO solutions that prioritize women's empowerment and the well-being of vulnerable communities in SIDS.
