2016 Women in Global Health Research Symposium

Our second annual women in global health research symposium was a two day conference that focused on how to overcome barriers specific to women researchers in resource-limited settings and how to ensure the health and safety of female global health researchers everywhere. We explored innovative ways to ensure women’s equal opportunities for leadership in global health, as we are striving to achieve our ultimate goal of reducing inequality and improving the lives of women globally.
