We are dedicated to building awareness, research and action on the equitable treatment of women and girls as a means of improving the health of populations globally.
We envision a world in which gender inequities and gender-based violence are eliminated, no longer posing a major threat to the health and full social and economic development of women and girls across the globe. In such a world, all individuals (particularly women and girls) and communities will be enabled and empowered to reach their full potential and contribute to the development of healthy, safe, economically secure and equitable societies.
