Imagine a world in which a woman’s well-being doesn't depend on where she is born. Envision a world in which mothers in poor countries don’t routinely die in childbirth. That’s the world for which we fight.
We gathered to celebrate this vision during PIH’s inaugural Evening for Equity at the John F. Kennedy Library and Museum on April 2, drawing together hundreds of global supporters and colleagues.
The night was filled with inspiring stories from four PIH women leaders in global health, as well as breathtaking film and lively entertainment. Guests left with a greater appreciation for why we prioritize and protect women’s health, and work to ensure that health care is a universal human right.
