Language Matters: Reimagining Communications in Global Health

As global health communicators, we intentionally use certain words and phrases to convey the value of work, share important learnings, engage our audiences, and advocate for change. Language plays an outsize role in shaping how our work is perceived, and the nature of the work itself. Language influences culture, shifts power dynamics, and drives social change.

Why Our Words Matter—And Five Approaches to Intentionally Employing Inclusive, Respectful Language

The words we choose and the language we use have the power to affect the people and the world around us. Our words represent our beliefs, morals, prejudices, and principles—sometimes in ways we may not mean—and can shape an audience’s perceptions of us as well as the issues about which we speak and write.

Holding Up a Mirror on International Equal Pay Day

EngenderHealth’s commitment to gender equality takes many forms. Through our programs, we work around the world to reconstruct gender norms by incorporating gender-transformative approaches to explore, challenge, and improve social norms, beliefs, and practices that shape women’s, girls’, and young people’s sexual and reproductive health options and outcomes. When it comes to our internal operations, we are just as committed to gender equality.

World Patient Safety Day: Safe and Respectful Childbirth Must Include Quality Surgical Obstetric Care

While significant progress has been made in recent years in preventing maternal and newborn deaths, the number is still much too high. Each year, over 290,000 women and almost 3 million newborns die and millions more are injured due to complications during pregnancy or childbirth. The vast majority of deaths, 94%, occur in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs), and nearly all these lives might be saved by timely, quality care.

Key Reflections from the CHOICE-EngenderHealth Partnership and our MYP Journey So Far

Too often, young people themselves are still seen as the main responsible stakeholders in achieving Meaningful Youth Participation (MYP). However, we, CHOICE for Youth and Sexuality and EngenderHealth, strongly believe it's the responsibility of each and every one of us.
