Ifakara Health Institute Chief Executive Director, Dr. Honorati Masanja, has issued a special statement on the International Women's Day 2023 in which he affirms the Institute’s commitment to give women staff of the organization equal rights, opportunities and the future they deserve.

“IFAKARA Health Institute has a long history of providing an equal space and future for women and all other staff. The principle of equal opportunity has guided our planning and measures to provide a work environment where women are free from bias, stereotypes and discrimination based on their gender – a work environment that gives them their deserved opportunity to serve and change the Institute, the country, and the world,” read the statement in part.

He says that Ifakara’s planning has always embraced gender equity, strategically focusing on creating a world that's diverse, equitable, and inclusive; a world where difference is valued and celebrated. “Women represented in all key decision-making organs i.e., the Board of Governors, Board of Trustees, Scientific Advisory Committee, Finance Audit and Risk Committee and the Management Committee,” notes the Director.
