Women Play Important Role In Promoting Health In India

PATH’s “DefeatDD Blog”: Women Lead the Way to a Healthier India
Erika Amaya, digital communications officer at PATH, discusses the importance of education and the role of women in health promotion in India. Amaya writes, “As increasing numbers of women become advocates for themselves, the demand for the things they need to keep their families healthy — sanitation, vaccines, nutritious foods, and more­ — continues to grow. … There’s no doubt that women are leading the charge toward a healthier India, and with their children in tow, the potential for positive change is enormous” (10/25).
