About the Lancet Commission on Gender and Global Health

In August 2020, a new Lancet Commission on Gender and Global Health was launched. The Commission, with three co-chairs and 25 commissions, has been set up with the explicit and uncompromising aim to move beyond the evidence to catalyse action on gender and global health. The Commission is being co-chaired by UCL Centre for Gender and Global Health Director, Sarah Hawkes; Director of the United Nations University International Institute for Global Health, Pascale Allotey; and Chair of the Kofi Annan Foundation and former Secretary General of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, Elhadj As Sy.
