When women lead, good health follows.

I strongly believe that change will come through organizing women and giving them leadership opportunities to help women articulate their demands and mobilize real change.

WomenLift Health, sponsored by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF), aims to accelerate the involvement of women in global health leadership by investing in and elevating talented mid-career women to become global health leaders and to contribute to their fullest potential.

Key components of the initiative include the development of a Leadership Journey for mid-career women leaders in global health, the development of a digital platform, a plan to amplify the voices of women global health leaders, a Global Advisory Board, an open and transparent process for continuing Women Leaders in Global Health (WLGH) conferences, integrating women’s leadership discussions in established global health meetings, and establishment of country partner hubs for delivering contextualized solutions to women in health beginning in India and East Africa.
