"I don't want to just 'demonstrate,' I want to demonstrate that women can come together and get focused."

About WHAMglobal


The Women's Health Activist Movement (WHAMglobal) forms networks of advocates and experts in women’s health and wellness to improve healthcare delivery and outcomes, equity, and leadership. WHAMglobal inspires regional, national, and international advocacy and action to advance women’s health, safety and quality, women’s position within the health workforce, and pay equity.


Women are the healthcare decision makers for families and they comprise the majority of the healthcare workforce. They understand what’s needed and bring unique voices that champion safe, compassionate, and equitable care.


WHAMglobal advocates have the power to transform and create a healthcare system by women and for everyone that better serves patients, families, and their workforce!


WHAMglobal provides engagement opportunities such as in-person creative community events, online communities and actions, and financial support of groups making a difference in women’s health in their communities.


WHAMglobal is on a mission to identify the root causes of maternal mortality and better understand how we support and care for moms and families through the entirety of their care. The initiative is focused on learning best practices and identifying partners from the Pittsburgh region, other states, and across the globe. The initiative also aims to explore global models of maternity care in order to identify how to advocate and gather networks to lift up the things that are working and change the things that aren’t.


WHAMglobal is honored to collaborate with a number of regional, state, and national partners. Our advisories represent diverse groups working together to improve the lives of women.
Thank you to our partners!
