Investing in Women in Global Health is Investing in Better Global Health

What started as a discussion in 2015, via social media and through student networks, among four like-minded women seeking gender equality in global health leadership, has now evolved into an unstoppable and global movement. We've had an outpouring of support from all corners of the world - support for this issue and support for our work - and we want to thank all of those who have supported us along this journey.
