A critical focus of the Women and Health Initiative is to educate the next generation of leaders in the field of women and health. The W&HI helps identify existing courses and fellowships available at Harvard and is developing new curricula to fill the gaps in educational opportunities.

The work of the Women and Health Initiative builds upon and complements the on-going educational training offered by the HSPH interdisciplinary concentration on Women, Gender, and Health (established in 2002) and the interdepartmental concentration on Maternal and Child Health/Children, Youth, and Families.
