Work We Endorse

Work We Endorse

The Institute for Women's Health eagerly partners with individuals, organizations, and countries that promote the highest attainable health and well-being for women through every stage of their lives.

Improving health for women cannot wait. This work is too important. But it cannot be accomplished alone.

The Institute for Women’s Health is committed to building coalitions that revolutionize women’s access to care. These coalitions include a myriad of foreign actors around the world which have diverse interests but share our mutual commitment to improve and protect the health of women. The Institute’s commitment to working with all actors sharing these commitments should not be interpreted to be a blanket endorsement of all activities or pronouncements of all entities with which we work.

The Geneva Consensus Declaration, first signed in 2020 and reaffirmed in 2021 and 2022, seeks to expand health and thriving for women, and protect the sovereign right of nations to support health, life, and family through national policy and legislation.

Join the Geneva Consensus Declaration. Nations may join the Geneva Consensus Declaration coalition by contacting the Government of Hungary, the Secretariat of the Declaration. This contact may be made via Hungary’s Maria Kopp Institute for Demography and Families, or Dr.  József Árpád Mészáros, Vice President for Strategy and Coordination. Contact IWH for more information.
