HealthyHer is a non-profit initiative, established in 2013 by Dr. Lior Baruch in order to implement a feminist approach to the medical practice, and to address inequality in healthcare.
HealthyHer operates on four levels:
- Promoting knowledge. Raising awareness to the unique health issues and needs of women and LGBTQI+, using the articles in our website, new and old media, talks and lectures
- Medical education. We teach healthcare students and providers how to apply a feminist approach to their practice
- Helping to shape feminist healthcare policies. We advise health organizations and government on gender mainstreaming and gender equity in healthcare
- Feminist medical research. We engage in medical research, focusing on feminist research questions and methodology
