"A new report from the Kaiser Family Foundation examines how countries are responding to and implementing the women, girls, and gender equality principle of the U.S. Global Health Initiative (GHI)," an email alert from the Foundation states, noting, "This principle, one of seven core principles of the GHI, aims to sharpen the focus on women and girls across U.S. government global health efforts." According to the alert, the report is "[b]ased on interviews conducted by the Foundation with representatives from 15 GHI country teams" and "identifies nine key themes and trends that could help inform U.S. policy discussions and the future directions of efforts related to the health of women and girls." The alert adds, "The report builds on earlier work by the Foundation on the women, girls, and gender equality principle, including a roundtable discussion and an analysis of 'GHI Plus' country strategies" (10/19).
