What's New

Janet's most recent article, written with Marie Ba and published on www.ThinkGlobalHealth.org, an initiative from the Council on Foreign Relations, examines the history of the Ouagadougou Partnership. "Sometimes innovation to spur social change arises in unexpected places," the piece begins. "At a time of increased extremism and insecurity in West Africa, the remarkable story of a partnership to advance women’s health and empowerment through family planning is worthy of global attention."

Janet's latest report explores how the United States can more effectively elevate the critical health and safety needs faced by women and girls in emergencies and fragile settings around the world. "While addressing these needs is an important goal on its own," she writes, "it also forms a pillar of global health security, as the prevention of health crises and conflict, and recovery after they occur, are greatly enhanced when these needs are met." She produced the publication for the CSIS Commission on Strengthening America's Health Security. You can listen to Janet being interviewed about the report on the Smart Women, Smart Power podcast.
