FOKUS represents the continuation of a five year program of cooperation between more than 40 women's organizations in Norway. The project was started in 1989 in conjunction with a fundraising telethon to aid women's projects in the Third World. After this initial campaign cooperation between the various organizations was continued with the creation of an information centre and a coordinating office to support various projects. The centre was called the Centre for International Women's Issues (CEWI). In 1995 CEWI merged with FOKUS in the Forum for Women and Development. FOKUS has created a website with an information service related to the Beijing Platform for Action. Languages: Norwegian, English.
