The IWI: Institute for Feminist Policy Reform (IWI) is an international women’s human rights organisation.[1] They are a think tank actively participating in lobbying, policy change and advocacy.[2]

IWI carries out research and publishes and collects resources on women’s rights issues.[3][4]

With the aid of local grassroots women’s organisations, IWI addresses issues central to the community. Issues such as reproductive and medical rights, freedom from violence, education and other fundamental human rights.[5]

Founded by Aubrey Shayler in 2012, International Women’s Initiative became The IWI: Institute For Feminist Policy Reform in 2018.[3]


IWI’s flagship program was The Safe Birthing Program (SBP), the program that initiated the creation of IWI.[1] Working with three local health centres in Northern Uganda, IWI provides essential birthing kits.

The Safe Birthing Program[6] is based in Amolatar, Uganda.
