A new report by Janet Fleischman of the Center for Strategic & International Studies, titled "The Global HeaIth Initiative in Malawi: New Approaches and Challenges to Reaching Women and Girls," examines the U.S. Global Health Initiative (GHI) in Malawi, stating, "The GHI team in Malawi has identified the health of women and girls, including HIV and family planning (FP)/reproductive health (RH) services, as critical, promising areas for GHI success." The report summary concludes, "The value and impact of GHI’s new business model may ultimately be evaluated based on its outcomes for women and girls, given the prominence of the women, girls, and gender equality principle in GHI and the importance of cross-sectoral approaches to address their health and non-health needs" (12/1).
