"Isha" - Israel Health Advancement for Women

The Initiative "Isha"

ISHA, the Hebrew word for "woman," is an acronym for the Israel Health Advancement for Women.
Launched in 2001 by the Jewish Agency and the Jewish Community Federation of Cleveland, this vital initiative brings together an international team of healthcare professionals, women's health advocates, academics, lay-leaders and researchers to advance women's health in Israel. The major objective of the ISHA partnership is to harness the collective power of women to improve their health and quality of life and to accord community leaders the tools with which to do so.

This multi-organizational, interdisciplinary program brings together and provides education and training for primary care physicians, health professionals, lay leaders in women's health and academicians, and strives to enhance the knowledge of the medical community on women's health issues, promote consumer awareness and establish women health advocates in communities throughout Israel. The Jewish Agency, with its extensive network and professional staff, is responsible for full implementation of the project.

Our current initiatives include:
Training 'Clalit' medical professionals;
Training Community Women's health advocates;
Promoting the well-being of disadvantaged women soldiers in the IDF;
Establishing leadership and empowerment project for Falash Mura Jewish women and their families;
Isha-Na'ara (Woman-Young Woman)- Raising youth awareness for the need to reduce violence in romantic teen relationships;
Empowering Tipat-Halav nurses to give women practical tools to enhance a healthier lifestyle, etc
.
