WHO WE ARE

Women in Global Health is a volunteer-run organization built on a global movement that brings together all genders and backgrounds to achieve gender equality in global health leadership. We believe that everyone has the right to attain equal levels of participation in leadership and decision-making regardless of gender. WGH creates a platform for discussions and collaborative space for leadership, facilitates specific education and training, garners support and commitment from the global community, and demands change for Gender Transformative Leadership.

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.
