[Perspectives] Ana Langer: global leader in women’s health

Ana Langer, leader of the Women and Health Initiative (W&HI) at the Harvard T H Chan School of Public Health, is the first to admit that there have been major advances in women’s health in the past decade, notably in maternal and reproductive health. But she is also clear about what she calls “the unfinished agenda of women’s health”. That agenda is powerfully articulated in the Lancet Commission on Women and Health, of which Langer is the lead author. “A key question the Commission seeks to address is why health systems are repeatedly failing women when women are the main users of, and providers of, health care”, she says.
