The recently established Lancet Commission on Gender and Global Health is delighted to announce a new fortnightly seminar series open to all. The Series accompanies the development of the Commission, inviting Commissioners and Co-Chairs to discuss a key topic, question, or challenge that the Commission hopes to tackle. The series aims to  involve a range of stakeholders and voices in its work and promote discussion and debate on gender and health.

In the second event of the series, we will hear from Commissioner Professor Olena Hankivsky,  Director of the Centre for Health Equity at the Melbourne School of Population and Global Health.

Olena Hankivsky's seminar will unpack why an intersectional lens will be integral to the work of the Commission and what light it can shed on our understandings and approaches to gender and health.

Details of the event

Join us from 16:00 - 16:30 GMT on Wednesday 17th February to hear from Olena Hankivsky and to pose your own reflections and questions on this topic to the Commission.

The event is open to all but pre-registration is required. A link to view the seminar will be circulated prior to the event, and a recording of the event will also be made available.

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.
