March 8th is International Women’s Day, a global celebration of women’s achievements and a call to improve women’s status, opportunities, and rights.

In recognition of this year’s theme, #PressforProgress, JSI highlights the importance of championing women in public health. Our approach is to partner with and engage women, communities, and local organizations to reduce health inequities and accelerate gender parity.

Here are 6 ways women are making a difference in public health.

On International Women’s Day and every day, JSI celebrates and supports the daily achievements of women who are working to promote and improve health across the globe.
