A new landmark report launched this year reveals that only a select group of the world’s top global health organisations place gender equality at the heart of their operations, both programmatically and institutionally.
The Global Health 50/50 Report, first of its kind, provides a thorough review of gender-related policies of more than 140 major organisations working in and/or influencing the field of global health. The report was developed by Global Health 50/50, an independent initiative housed by the University College London Centre for Gender and Global Health.
Gender equality has seemingly been embraced as a priority in global health however, there is growing concern that too few global health organisations walk the talk by defining, programming, resourcing or monitoring gender, either as a determinant of health, or as a driver of career equality in their own workplaces. How is your organisation doing?
