Women's health is hanging in the balance.
Amidst high-level foreign policy negotiations, the health of women is often set aside in favor of polarizing policy debates. Women, especially the most vulnerable, become collateral damage.
Foreign assistance and global funding often fails to emphasize the overall health of the person, instead focusing on siloed priorities or the most divisive policies. For too many women, this causes more harm than good.
The Institute for Women's Health (IWH) is committed to helping women live their healthiest lives by removing the obstacles that stand in the way. Finding solutions that matter to women's health matters to us. Though tremendous gains have been made for the health of women globally, much work remains.
Something About It
We already know how to solve or treat many of these health challenges. Our job at the Institute for Women's Health (IWH) is to remove the obstacles standing in the way.
When there is coordinated action among multidisciplinary influencers – including governments, non-governmental organizations, and individuals – women can be empowered and given access to information and health care. Improving health for women, especially in the most challenging areas, requires all of us working together.
