We are delighted to announce that on March 8th, on International Women’s Day, the UCL Centre for Gender and Global Health, will be launching the inaugural report of Global Health 50/50 at University College London. Global Health 50/50 is a new initiative, hosted by the UCL Centre for Gender and Global Health, created with the aim of advancing accountability and action for gender equality in global health.  

The Global Health 50/50 report will examine the gender policies and practices of the world’s most influential global health organisations. The report will be the first of its kind, taking a unique 360 degree approach by analysing both the gender-responsiveness of external programmes and operations, and the internal workplace policies and practices of over 140 organisations. The report will explore the extent to which organisations commit and take action to promote gender equality, help identify where change is needed and share examples of best practice.    

The launch will take place in the UCL Kennedy Lecture Theatre from 18:30-20:00 on the 8th March 2018 and will also be live-streamed for those who wish to join remotely. The launch will be the first in a series of global launches including New Delhi and Geneva.

Hosted by Dame Nicola Brewer, Vice Provost of UCL, the event will present findings from the report, followed by an interactive panel discussion with speakers including Jocalyn Clark, Executive Editor of the LancetJeremy Farrar, Director of the Wellcome Trust and Jonny Baxter, Head of Human Development, DFID and Mott MacDonald, discussing accountability and action needed to advance gender equality in global health. 

The event will be free to attend and open to all. Read more about Global Health 50/50 and follow us on twitter for updates @GlobalHlth5050
