Women's Health to Wealth (WHW)




Women’s Health to Wealth (WHW), is an offspring of the now defunct Millennium Cities Initiatives (MCI) founded by world-renowned development economist Jeffrey D. Sachs as the urban counterpart to the Millennium Villages. Women’s Health to Wealth began as a tiny women’s clinic at the heart of the bustling Bantama Market in downtown Kumasi, which serves some of the busiest women in Ghana’s second largest city. After working together for more than 10 years in Kumasi as part of Columbia University’s Millennium Cities Initiative, WHW’s directors are continuing their collaboration on behalf of the area’s women and girls, under the new rubric of Women’s Health to Wealth, it extended its reach to hundreds more women, families and at-risk girls.
