EngenderHealth, a leading international women’s health organization, is gearing up to safeguard and protect decades of progress in advancing women’s health and rights across the world. The establishment of a new policy and advocacy department comes in swift reaction to a challenging U.S. political climate, with the reinstatement and expansion of the harmful Global Gag Rule, which will deny millions of women and girls their basic rights and freedoms. Mina Barling, a lifelong advocate for women’s reproductive rights, will lead the new division.
EngenderHealth, a leading international women’s health organization whose vision is “women and girls first,” announces its unwavering commitment to the She Decides initiative. For more than 70 years, EngenderHealth has worked toward ensuring that all women, regardless of where they live, have the right to determine if and when they want to have children, along with the opportunity to plan their families and their futures.
EngenderHealth strongly denounces the reinstatement of the Global Gag Rule, also known as the Mexico City Policy, that will deny millions of women and girls their basic rights and freedoms.
EngenderHealth, a leading global women’s health organization, has named Ulla Müller as its new President and Chief Executive Officer.
