#PowerInHerHands – Impact Mag. No. 25

The global health community sees the need for radical innovation to continue to build on the successes of the past as institutional funding shrinks and new technologies evolve.

Because there is growing evidence that we’ll see greater health outcomes faster when we engage the very women and girls we aim to serve in program design and put power in her hands.

And that’s the core of what PSI’s Impact magazine’s #PowerInHerHands issue will explore, launching at the 2019 Women Deliver conference this June.

Dig in and hear more from Maverick Collective’s Dr. Precious Moloi-Motsepe, Women Deliver’s Katja Iversen, WHO’s Ian Askew & Manjulaa Narasimhan, FP2020’s Beth Schlachter, AVAC’s Mitchell Warren, CIFF’s Miles Kemplay, PATH’s Martha Brady, 10 Women Deliver Young Leaders and A360’s very own young designers addressing how putting #PowerInHerHands can change the future for global development.
