Women RISE (Women’s health and economic empowerment for a COVID-19 Recovery that is Inclusive, Sustainable and Equitable) is a new initiative to support action-oriented research on how women’s health and their work (paid or unpaid) intersect and interact in the context of preparing for, responding to and recovering from COVID-19.
Since 2016, a research team of senior and emerging African and Canadian researchers from the University of Malawi and the University of British Columbia (UBC), working in collaboration with Malawi’s Ministry of Health, has been exploring how to improve the use of proven ways to help save these babies’ lives.
