Gender equality specialists, WISE Development are merging with Health Partners International (HPI) to become part of the HPI Group.
It’s a marriage that is of particular relevance today as issues of equity and women’s access to health services can only be resolved with an integrated approach to governance and systems.
“We are very proud to announce that WISE Development has joined the HPI Group,” said Chair of Health Partners International, Bryan Haddon. “WISE Development has a strong reputation and brings to HPI expertise in women’s empowerment and gender issues that will strengthen and complement HPI’s portfolio in health systems and governance, while providing joint opportunities in health and other sectors. The good news is that this combination has already shown tremendous potential and delivered some impressive results even in very difficult environments such as northern Nigeria.”
“Becoming part of the HPI Group, which is an employee owned and socially responsible organisation, is a natural evolution, as our values, interests and ways of working are very similar, said Georgia Taylor, Director of WISE Development. Together we will be able to realise real synergy to augment our efforts to enhance the well-being of women and girls ”.
We celebrated and marked this milestone with an event on 10th September, 2015 “Can health outcomes improve without empowering women and girls?”
