Our Leadership

Meet the Global WACh Leadership Team

Global WACh is continually innovating research, education, and leadership development to support sustainable improvements in the health of communities. We aim to have global breadth, and are unique in our lifecycle lens approach to the integration of woman, child, and adolescent health. We envision a world in which communities recognize the value of women, children and youth by assuring them access to quality health services and the educational, social and economic opportunities necessary to achieve health and well-being. Meet the people who drive our organization forward.
