Every mother and child count: overcoming invisibility.

Author information

Brigham Young University, Provo, UT, USA.


While statistics document shocking and sobering facts about disparities in women's health and women's quality of life around the world, they do not portray the lives of women individually or recognize the importance of listening to their voices. Reasons for the continuing invisibility of women include issues related to mission, attitudes, evaluation, translation, prevention, integration, empowerment, organization, advocacy and leadership. This article explains the underpinnings of these contributors to women's invisibility and offers readers ways to become more fully engaged in global health initiatives to make women and children more visible.
