COVID-19: How We’re Responding

About Us

Through the @Hewlett_Found-supported project in West and Central Africa, we partner with @JVSAssociation in Bénin to create an enabling environment for youth access to #SRHR, including safe abortions.

Check out their "My Choice" twitter campaign! ⬇️

In anticipation of International Women’s Day on March 8, we’ll spend the week highlighting programs that are contributing to a more gender equal world. Stay tuned for #InternationalWomensDay Spotlights!

Addressing fistula is key to advancing #SRHR.

Since 2005, EngenderHealth has supported over 45,000 fistula repairs thanks to @USAID. Learn about advancements in fistula care across Africa & Asia at our event on March 8: http://bit.ly/FCPlus-Webinar

The @USAID-funded @fistulacare project takes a diverse approach to reducing barriers to fistula care. A key component of preventing fistula is expanding access to high-quality sexual and reproductive health services.

EngenderHealth supports capacity building & GBV awareness creation at Arbaminch Hospital, an integrated care center for GBV screening, counseling, treatment, and legal aid in Ethiopia. We were honored to host state officials to learn about successes & challenges in this model.

Thanks everyone! The FC+ website is a great place to start for more information and resources on fistula prevention and treatment, including research results, project reports, and stories from providers and clients. http://bit.ly/fistularesources https://twitter.com/EngenderHealth/status/1364608432880443393

Obstetric fistula is a beacon of inequality, as it occurs where women are already living with limited resources and access to healthcare. Additionally, once fistula occurs, women often face significant stigma and isolation which can impact their social and economic wellbeing. https://twitter.com/EngenderHealth/status/1364605591528886273

Board Policy on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

The EngenderHealth Board of Directors embraces EngenderHealth’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion in its work and workplace. We believe that a Board constituted to represent a diversity of life experiences and which encourages and values differing perspectives best enables EngenderHealth to fulfill its mission on behalf of the communities it serves.

It is the policy of the EngenderHealth Board to promote and ensure diversity among its ranks. The Board’s Governance Committee is charged to continually review and assess the composition of the Board to ensure there is appropriate diversity, including but not limited to gender and gender identity, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, geographic location, background, sector, and salient skills. The Governance Committee actively engages to maintain a well‐balanced Board and to address any deficiencies through its recruitment efforts.

The Board reaches out in various ways to make public its openings in order to identify and consider the greatest diversity of candidates possible. It also regularly tracks and publicly reports performance metrics on Board composition.
