We believe that access to quality healthcare is critical to empowerment. According to the World Health Organization, being a man or a woman has a significant impact on health: in many societies, women and girls are disadvantaged. Women and girls face increased vulnerability to HIV/AIDS. Women and girls struggle to attain good health and face obstacles to using quality health services due to unequal power relationships between men and women, decreased education and paid employment opportunities, and potential or actual experience of physical, sexual and emotional violence.
Healthier women have healthier children and enrich their communities. The ella fund seeks to support projects that aim to develop innovative healthcare solutions and/or enhance access to quality healthcare goods and services.
