“The contributions of Fogarty to knowledge regarding the health of women from a global perspective are invaluable. Fogarty values the critical role that sex and gender play at every level of analysis and I have great admiration for its recognition of ’women as makers.’ Whether sustaining families and communities, participating as research volunteers, or conducting research themselves, women are central to the well-being of our world population. Collaborations and partnerships are increasingly necessary, not only for the health of low- and middle-income countries, but for countries such as the U.S., so that we will be able to learn from women helping women across the borderless health terrain.”
