International Women's Health Summit

The Maya Angelou International Women’s Health Summit is a multinational collaboration dedicated to highlighting and improving the health of women around the world.

Together, we can create conversations and develop strategies to help make women’s health a global priority.

A few of the topics to be covered include maternal and infant mortality, cross-cultural differences in women’s health, women and The Affordable Care Act, global obesity, the impact of war and conflict on women’s health, and much more.
