Call for Commitments on Gender Equality
From the Global Health Community
A CALL FOR GLOBAL HEALTH
COMMITMENTS ON GENDER EQUALITY
At the 69th World Health Assembly, we called on every stakeholder within the global health and development fields to take a critical look at their own organizations and to make commitments to advance women in global health leadership and achieve great gender equity in global health leadership at all levels.
We are continuing this movement by requesting that you make 1 to 2 commitments either on behalf of yourself or your organization on how you will advance gender equality in the global health sector before the next World Health Assembly.
If you are looking for inspiration, the International Geneva Gender Champions have already developed a very strong set of commitments – and you can find the link at the bottom of the page. With your approval, we will also be sharing your commitments and photos.
Questions? Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
HOW TO SUBMIT A 'MY #WOMENINGH COMMITMENT'
You can also print the #WomeninGH Commitment template below, write your commitment on the template, and snap a photo of you holding the commitment. Send to email@example.com.
BONUS: If you have a personal photo which illustrates why your commitment is important to global health development, please attach the photo with your commitment template.

How can we build the next generation of female leaders in
global health? Why does it matter?
