3 women. 3 countries. 3 stories untold. Until now.

Mercy, Dr. Sharmila and Mrs. Rohani come from different backgrounds. They speak difference languages. Yet they share a common journey, overcoming steep challenges and expectations to bring better health to their communities. 

Today women make up 75% of the global healthcare workforce, yet too often their work is unrecognized. These are three of many untold stories that may hold the key to unlocking better health for more people around the world.
