We provide funding and technical support to organizations in Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, Latin America and the Middle East. Our partners are securing access to safe and legal abortion, ending child marriage, providing comprehensive sexuality education, and building safe communities for women and girls.
International Women’s Healthcare Foundation employs a trust-based philanthropy model that provides sustained and flexible funding as well as customized technical assistance defined in consultation with each organization. We listen to grantee partners and create a true partnership that supports their strategic priorities, fortifies the work of their organizations, and bolsters a global movement of resilient advocates who fight for sexual and reproductive rights.
International Women’s Healthcare Foundation ’s grantmaking is bold—focused on the policy issues that local advocates have identified as most strategic, and often, most difficult. This approach has helped achieve groundbreaking victories for women and girls, including:
- The integration of comprehensive sexuality education into school curricula.
- Improved access to youth-centered and gender-based violence services.
- Legislative and policy reforms that increase and/or protect access to abortion.
- Strengthened national, regional, and global advocacy networks.
Ambitious advocacy requires renewal, and International Women’s Healthcare Foundation continues to identify new partnerships, strategies, and opportunities to advance the rights of women and girls around the world.
