Role
These women groups have over the years evolved and have increasingly become pressure groups demanding and promoting access to skilled health services, operate revolving fund scheme where group members save their own money and take loans to support small scale businesses, pay medical bills and support education funding for their children.

The consequence of this positive development is that the role of 100WG is now much more strongly aligned to governance—to advance MNCH and increasingly advance the strategic interests of women in general—the strategic approaches underpinning this new role has not kept pace with this need.
