Commitment by

Harvard School Of Public Health

In 2012, Harvard School of Public Health committed to advance the field in the critical area of women's health and well-being by strengthening the Leadership for Women's Health (LWH) program. Over the course of three years, the LWH program will foster and enhance the growth of emerging leaders from the developing world, supporting their ability to identify and address critical health needs; build a knowledge base of women's health resources to facilitate open-source, evidence-based research; and form a learning network that will facilitate interactions and connections amongst emerging leaders, academics, practitioners, policy-makers and other stakeholders within the global women's health community. The LWH program aims to substantially improve the health and equity status of women in the communities and regions in which fellows programs are based.
