About the International Women’s Health Coalition:
IWHC shapes international policy and builds local capacity for women’s health and human rights in Africa, Asia and Latin America. We leverage our work in these two very different, but critically linked worlds – to change thinking, redirect funding and motivate action by people and institutions that can secure rights and health for women. This requires a strategy in which:
We Advocate: We advocate and motivate social, political and corporate leaders to enact policy and provide funding for women’s rights and health. We take courageous stands and achieve political victories for women in nations’ capitals and the United Nations.
We Empower: We provide grants and forge professional partnerships with local leaders as they build organizations to secure women’s rights and health, primarily in Africa, Asia and Latin America. Since 1984, we have provided over $16.5 million in grants to women and youth advocates.
We Mobilize: We mobilize women and young people, enabling them to take action to
secure their rights, health and well-being. We have helped to build and sustain 75 organizations in 10 countries and create broad and powerful alliances.
We Inform: We analyze and communicate facts and pathbreaking ideas for policy improvement to powerbrokers, health professionals, influentials and other advocates. We produce and publish ideas and strategies to make public health policies work for women and girls worldwide.
