The theme of the first day of Women Deliver 2013 was Investing in Women and Girls. During the day, MSH and the Leadership, Management, and Governance (LMG) project held a panel on investing in women as leaders of the health system.
At the MSH booth, we asked conference attendees to tell us the diverse ways women lead around the world.
