Advancing the Leadership of Women and Girls Towards Better Health and Climate Change Resilience

This program, funded by Takeda, builds the resilience of communities in Bangladesh, Myanmar, and Pakistan to withstand climate shocks and emergencies through women-led preparation, response, and recovery. Our integrated approach includes strengthening health systems, and supporting improved nutrition and water, sanitation, and hygiene. The program positions women and girls as change agents in strengthening access to equitable health services and building community resilience to climate shocks—ultimately helping women forge their own paths to a healthier future.
