In the wake of international debates and agendas, the health needs of women around the world were not being seen or heard. More than ever, there was a deep, pressing need for real advocacy for women around the world. So, the Institute for Women’s Health was formed. This mission is motivated by a knowledge of partnership with women across the world and a desire to see their futures in their own hands as they grow and flourish.
