Women’s Health

Women’s Health

Together we can improve the health of every woman.

Being born a woman shouldn’t be a health risk factor. But in much of the world, it is. Achieving the Women’s Health Moonshot means widening the aperture on the definition of women’s health, focusing on issues that move beyond the current litmus test — sexual and reproductive health — to a standard of living well. This includes a women’s right to physical and mental health and wellbeing. According to the WHO, self-harm, including suicide, was the second leading cause of death globally among females, aged 15–29, in 2015. It means creating a world where individual women no longer have to shoulder the burden of advocating for themselves in order to get proper medical care, a world where they can rely on the medical system.
