I must also emphasize that none of this could have been done without the sustained leadership of some visionary and dedicated people, in particular Mahmoud Fathalla, who had the courage to conceive the idea and approach IWHC for the first dialogue meeting, Peter Hall and Joanne Spicehandler who initiated and carried out the work at the beginning, and Paul Van Look, who supported and helped sustain the work under his directorship from 1998 until his retirement in 2009.
IWHC was founded in 1984 to advance the sexual and reproductive health and rights of women and young people, particularly adolescent girls, in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East, and advocates for supportive international and USA policies, programmes and funding.

By the time Joan stepped down in 1998, IWHC was playing a leading role in influencing government and UN agency policies to ensure that women's human rights were at the core of population policies.
