We've committed to ensure fair representation of women in leadership, publish gender pay gap data and collect sex- & age-disaggregated data as part of @womeninGH, @WagnerFound & @ForeignPolicy's #WGHSecuritySummit: https://bit.ly/2HaAuYd #COVID5050

PANEL 2: Lauren Petrella of @UNHABITAT on why we need better sex-dissagregated data 📈:

"When we look at gender-aggregated data, we gain so much more understanding of challenges and disadvantages."

Former #UNGA President @mfespinosaEC: "It is essential that we keep the funding for shelters and places that can be safe places for women. They should be considered essential services" #COVID5050 #WGHSecuritySummit

PANEL: @PSillanaukee states "access to sexual and reproductive health is essential during the pandemic" We need to:

🏠Fund shelters and safe places for women
📈Women in greater numbers making decisions in public health
🪙Economic packages boost health systems

#WGHSecuritySummit

#COVID19 revealed underlying gender inequalities across income, health, and security that have been in the system for a long time – the pandemic just shined a spotlight on them. @abhatiaunwomen discusses the gendered impact of the pandemic #WGHSecuritySummit #COVID5050 @womeninGH

Gender equality means having access to education, a voice, a vote, a seat at the table, and equal opportunities. It also means having laws and leaders that support gender equality, says @mvankerkhove, COVID-19 Technical Lead at @WHO. #COVID5050 #WGHSecuritySummit #UNGA

Advancing Family Planning

Across the globe, we have proven that even in resource-poor settings, family planning services can be safe, effective, and affordable. Learn about our work in contraception, informed choice, and more.

Maternal Health

Our approach to maternal health is holistic, addressing women’s sexual and reproductive health needs throughout their lives. We work to equip health facilities with medical supplies and well-trained staff to provide high-quality services.

Youth-Centered Programs

EngenderHealth believes in comprehensive sexuality education, providing age-appropriate information consistent with the evolving capacities of young people. Our adolescent/youth-friendly services are accessible, acceptable, equitable, appropriate, and effective.

Gender Equality

We are committed to achieving gender equality through sexual and reproductive health and rights programs. We work through gender-equitable approaches to ensure women and girls can access quality sexual and reproductive health information and services.

HIV, AIDS, and Sexually Transmitted Infections

To help overcome the global HIV epidemic, we train health providers, improve health services, and advocate for national and international policies that respond to the needs of people living with HIV.

Engaging Men As Partners in Reproductive Health

Addressing gender issues is essential to improving the health of both women and men. Through our Men As Partners® program and other initiatives, we mobilize men to support their partners’ reproductive health, promote gender equity, and reduce gender-based violence.

Improving Clinical Quality

We improve the quality of health care by training providers to be responsive and informative, to prevent infection at the facility, and to increase communication among staff. Our pioneering COPE® process has been adapted around the world.

Advocacy and Policy

We work locally, globally, and in the United States to influence evidence-based policy change that will lead to lasting improvements in reproductive health care services.

Major Projects

EngenderHealth is the managing partner of several major projects—consortiums of organizations working in partnership to achieve the maximum impact on public health. These projects range from global to country-specific.
