WOMEN IN GLOBAL HEALTH RESEARCH INITIATIVE

2019 Scientific Conference

Our fourth annual conference highlighted research on women’s global health issues and had a dedicated session to establish policies and programs around the world to retain women in academic global health careers.
 
We accepted scientific abstracts in order to showcase the research that women leaders in global health are conducting. We accepted abstracts in two categories:
 
1) Global Health Research, with particular consideration given to research on women's health
2) Evidence-based Interventions, designed to retain and promote female leaders in global health
Topics
  • Policy processes in relation to gender and health

  • Strategies for returning to a LMIC after training abroad

  • Research in special populations: a case study of medications in pregnancy with antiretroviral therapy (ART)

  • Early career development in global health: how to network and negotiate

  • Bringing research to scale: promoting female leaders

  • Female leaders across the research continuum
