Women • Well-Being

Women sustain families and build communities. Contribute to economic well-being and care for the earth. At University of Wisconsin-Madison Global Health Institute, we believe improving the lives of women improves the lives of all. That is why GHI co-convened the 4W (Women and Well-being in Wisconsin and the World) Initiative.

Who works for women’s well-being? Earth scientists, consumer scientists and social scientists. Artists and teachers. Public health experts and philanthropists. Partners from across campus working with communities in Wisconsin and across the world.

Using motorbikes to bring basic health services to women in rural Kenya. Acting to end sex trafficking. Collaborating with artisans in Ecuador, Mexico, India and Nepal to bring needed financial resources to families. Contributing to a safer, healthier and more equitable world for all.
