Women’s health India

The George Institute’s Women’s Health Program in India reflects the principle of our Global Women’s Health Program of focusing on women’s health and well-being over the life course. Consistent with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), our goal is to generate empirical evidence to improve the health of women in India, achieve gender equality and empower all women, by 2030.

The researchers at TGI India are currently working on four cross cutting themes comprising:

  • Women’s cancer and gynaecological morbidity
  • Women, health and the environment
  • Prevention, identification and treatment of non-communicable diseases (NCDs)
  • Human resources for health with a focus on female frontline workers and women’s health leadership.
