Global Women's Health

Mount Sinai’s Division of Global Women’s Health’s mission is to alleviate health disparities faced by women in low- and middle-income countries by sharing knowledge and building sustainable projects. We work to create integrated health programs, improve access and availability of services, reduce maternal morbidity and mortality, improve health workforce training, and educate patients and communities in women’s health care.

The Division has worked to meet the needs of underserved communities and reduce the health disparities among developing and developed countries through long-standing public health interventions. We focus on comprehensive approaches to quality and effective health care for women to produce sustainable results in each of the locations we serve.

Education in Global Women’s Health

Mount Sinai’s Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Science is one of the first programs in the country to offer a preparatory course in global health for residents at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. Our residents gain exposure and an understanding of the women’s health challenges in low resource settings and come away more equipped to provide exemplary care for women in all settings. In addition, we offer a Global Women’s Health Fellowship, an intensive program preparing future innovative drivers of global women’s health in making significant contributions to the field.
