In Colombia, Erika visited the cities of Cartagena and the capital Bogota, and the communities of Turbaco and El Pozon in Bolivar. In Ecuador, Erika visited the capital city of Quito and spent time with an indigenous community in Otavalo, Imbabura.

This outreach trip enabled the Global Fund to learn firsthand about major political and socio-economic trends affecting women in both countries, which will help us identify concrete strategies for effectively supporting the women's movement in Colombia and Ecuador.
