WHAT WE DO
We promote the case for women in leadership in global health, gender equity and investment in the female health workforce because women’s contribution is the foundation of health systems everywhere and therefore, the foundation of global health. There is no global health without women’s work in health and social care. This is not a marginal health systems or UHC issue, it is not a ‘nice to have’ and it is not a women’s issue. It is life and health and central to health systems strengthening.
