Janet's latest podcast brings three perspectives about the importance, impact, and challenges of reaching vulnerable young women with economic strengthening activities through PEPFAR’s DREAMS program (Determined, Resilient, Empowered, AIDS-free, Mentored, and Safe). She speaks with Daniel Oluoch-Madiang, the DREAMS coordinator for PATH in Kenya, Valary Atieno, a DREAMS participant, and Veronica Chesongok Owiti, a DREAMS mentor.
Janet and J. Stephen Morrison, who is senior vice president and director of the CSIS Global Health Policy Center, served as lead authors of "A Call to Action: Women’s Health and Gender Equality," which was signed by 30 experts in global health, foreign policy, economic development, and national security signed. The group represents a range of political views, but agrees that advancing women’s health and gender equality as fundamental rights is not only critical for global health and development, but also serves U.S. national security interests. It calls for Biden-Harris administration to prioritize U.S. global leadership on women’s health and gender equality.
