The Women in Global Health Research Initiative is an initiative to support women global health researchers working to improve health in low and middle income countries. Female health providers are well-poised to change the trajectory of poor health outcomes, but women hold less than 25% of leadership roles in global health research.
Why don't we see more women in global health leadership? What kind of support is needed in order for women to stay in this field?
The Women in Global Health Research Initiative began by identifying four main gender-based challenges that women working in global health often encounter in their careers.
