History

Girls Health Alliance was founded by a girl’s rights activist, Pauline Faith Gartor who got stroked by the needless death of a childhood friend from an unsafe abortion when she was 17 years old, and the subsequent death of her beloved mother from curable disease due to a lack of skilled health attendants.   The two tragedies have had Pauline traumatized for years; until she started advocating for women’s health, sexual reproductive health rights, and gender equality. Pauline has always been saddened by what happened to her friend who could not live to complete her studies and live a purposeful life and she believes her mother’s death should have been prevented had her country, Liberia had better health facilities and services.  Pauline’s passion got ignited to tackle these issues with commitment, and she founded Girls Health Alliance in 2019.
