About us

About Latinas in Global Health

Our Philosophy

We are transforming how healthcare professionals connect to improve and scale their work. We facilitate discussions and redefine collaborations focusing on health programs that will build a healthier region.

We put women's work in the spotlight cause it oftens lacks recognition. Globally women make up 70% of the healthcare workforce but only 25% get into leadership roles. But what happens in Latin America, part of our Research Institute work is to collect gender data to challenge the status quo to inform policy and translate into actionable solutions.
Our Research Institute focuses on asking the right questions to collect and generate data that will transform people's lives.

We work on three pillars; building community, creating partnerships and elaborating research.
