Established in 2011, the Center for Global Women's Health works to advance health for women and girls around the globe. See the impact of 3 of the Center's projects that highlight the breadth and scope of the Center's mission from providing care to the rural populations of Greece to educating birth attendants in Haiti to developing options to help women escape the world of human trafficking in Philadelphia.

We must better understand the complex relationship between urban living and the health of women with the goal of developing innovative solutions that make urban communities universally safer, cleaner, and more livable.
