WomenLift Health Announces Collaboration on Stakeholder Analysis with Several Regional Partners

WomenLift Health is pleased to announce the launch of a stakeholder analysis study with partners in Uganda, Rwanda, Kenya, Nigeria, India, U.S. and Europe to better understand the landscape of women’s leadership in health across these regions. This analysis will include interviews with senior leaders at influential public/global health organizations in each country, which will inform WomenLift Health’s individual and institutional influence level strategies for advancing women’s leadership in health globally.


“The insights and expertise of our partners are the engine that power WomenLift Health’s mission,” said Shagun Sabarwal, South Asia Region and Global MEL Director at WomenLift Health.  “Over the next five years, we will expand to serve women in over 10 countries and over 85% of these women leaders will be in LMICs at the national and provincial/state/district levels of health. It is imperative that we include the diverse, lived experiences and perspectives from leaders across these geographies.”


Among the partners collaborating on this analysis are the International Center for Research on Woman, Africa (Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda), Nextier (Nigeria), Leveraging Evidence for Access and Development (LEAD) at Krea University (India) and Bixal (U.S., Canada, Europe). WomenLift Health will release this analysis early next year and will continue to prioritize real-time learning, monitoring of progress and evaluation of results as it expands.
